In the latest @unions21 podcast, @simonsapper and @beckyunions21 get the inside story from Paul Day on how the pharmacists’ union PDAU took on Boots – and won but needed to trigger the UK’s first union derecognition ballot to do so. Joe Dromey from IPPR tells us why now the best time for unions is to impact on public policy. We get on our soapbox to deliver a few home truths as Pimlico Plumbers lose another court battle over the status of their workers and assess the prospects for the IWGB’s as they secure leave to appeal against a judgement that says Deliveroo riders are self-employed. Contact us at email@example.com. A Makes-You-Think production.
