Subject illustration: Partnership

The TUC has a longstanding commitment to partnerships between unions and employers. Partnerships at work can deliver higher productivity, improved performance and successful changes to workplace organisation. Partnership enables unions to play an active role in shaping an organisation's policy and strategy, and increases union involvement in organisational change. The TUC Partnership Institute, launched in January 2001, provides expertise, advice and support to unions and employers on developing successful workplace partnerships. Here you can find our research on partnership and its place in a stakeholding society. You can find older material by using the search facilities.
