This event will explore the new insecurities migrant and local workers are experiencing after the Brexit vote and consider how trade unions should respond to combat this insecurity and associated exploitation.  The event will feature examples of work by trade unions and allies in NGOs and community groups to organise insecure workers.  It will discuss how this work can be built on to foster solidarity between migrant and local workers and combat anti-migrant sentiments.  This event is part of the TUC’s Rethinking Organising series. It will also showcase new resources the TUC has developed to support organising insecure workers that include the ‘Working in the UK’ guide to employment rights available in 21 languages (www.tuc.org.uk/workingintheuk).
