Morning Star Autumn Conference 2016
The EU referendum divided the trade union movement and the Left. Now unity is essential if we are to defend our democracy and reshape our economy on progressive terms in the new circumstances outside the EU.
Over the coming months the Conservatives will make every effort to develop a new international framework that will continue to enforce existing neo-liberal policies and the dominance of big business.
The Morning Star’s Autumn Conference is about how to stop this. It will debate the options and alliances that potentially exist, inside and outside the EU, for progressive policies - for public ownership, reversing privatisation, investing in the productive economy and restoring collective bargaining.
