Global Issues New World of Work

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digitalization in the world of work. Supported by artificial intelligence, new forms of automation, algorithmic management and data collection have transformed workplaces in every economic sector. Remote work has risen to a level never seen before, bringing long wanted flexibility for some but also risks, including increased e-surveillance, longer hours and lack of access to unions. 

At UNI Global Union, we believe unions must shape the world of work to ensure that new technology delivers shared prosperity and benefits for all. We are fighting for a digital just transition to good jobs, dignity for workers and a seat at the table to negotiate the affects and use of digital technology.
