This year the collaborative programme People’s History again takes the form of a full day symposium, this time on the topic of precarious work.

People’s History is an annual partnership between Labour History Project, Alexander Turnbull Library and Wellington Museum.

This Symposium traces the rise of precarious work – non-standard employment that is poorly paid, insecure, unprotected and unsustaining – since 1991. Come and join a conversation with academics, trade unionists and community organisers about the changes to the workforce since New Zealand’s industrial relations system was dismantled and welfare cuts were instituted. How have workers negotiated these changes and what can we do to address precarious work in the future?

The day will be arranged into blocks of four with groups of speakers talking at each session and time for audience/speaker conversation. There will be music and time to raise your issues.

This is a full day symposium. Please register at ATLOutreach@dia.govt.nz for catering purposes.
