This report by the TUC was launched online on 6 July 2020 by Frances O’Grady (TUC Gen Sec), Annmarie Kilcline (Unite), Ravi Subramanian (Unison), Lee Barron (Midlands TUC Gen Sec) and Liam Byrne (Labour candidate for WM Mayor). (The GMB speaker was unable to attend.)

We are publishing key local extracts to help see where more action and stronger policies are needed.
