What efforts have your officers made to get trade unions to include the Good Work Standard in their negotiating priorities at an employer and sectoral / regional level?

Last year I was proud to have launched the Good Work Standard with the support of union colleagues. TUC and Unison and themselves have become accredited employers and other unions have started the process.

I am aware of examples of where unions have used the Good Work Standard as the benchmark they would like to see employers achieve, for example in Canary Wharf. I think this is a great approach and something I’d like to see more of.
