Catwalks and Organising - Unionising the fashion sector w/Jamie Briers

September 21, 2020

In the latest episode of the UnionDues podcast, Simon chats with Equity National Industrial Organiser Jamie Briers about the relationship between catwalks and unions – epitomised by Equity’s agreement with London Fashion Week’s host – the British Fashion Council.

The fashion industry is worth £35bn a year to the UK economy and employs nearly 900,000 people.  And London Fashion Week, taking place right now,  is a globally important event..

We also talk about the existential crisis facing British Theatre – and why the £1.5bn aid package from government was nowhere near enough and how the union with others launched a comprehensive campaign to save the sector. 

The companion blogpost is here, and you can reach nearly 70 trade union related podcasts through the Labor Radio Podcast Network portal .  A Makes You Think production
