The WorkerTech Podcast - Episode 2: Having a voice

Episode Info

This Tech for Good Live podcast is a three-part series about WorkerTech, made in conjunction with our friends at Bethnal Green Ventures.

In this second episode we talk about the importance of workers having a voice. The importance of employees being able to support one another, to organise and take shared action. As union membership declines and tech becomes ever more integral to work and our daily lives, has the ability to come together and to organise faded away? What role is tech playing in this space? We talk about the Google Walkout, hear about a WorkerTech case study to support Amazon employees, and we discuss remote working.

Throughout this series we spoke to Dan Tomlinson from the Resolution Trust, Linda Wickstrom from Accenture, Fabian Wallace-Stephens from the Royal Society of Arts, Unman Mohamed from Organise, Guy Levin from Uber, Duncan McCann from the New Economic Foundation, Rachel Carey from Zinc and of course, Jessica Stacey from Bethnal Green Ventures.
