Latest booklet - Negotiating the new homeworking landscape - a guide for union reps

COVID-19 has changed the working lives of millions of people, including many whose work has switched from office to home. As restrictions gradually start to ease, employers, employees and unions are all considering how much home or remote working they want to maintain in the post-pandemic world and how it should be organised.

For employees, there are pros and cons of working remotely, and unions will want to ensure that decisions on remote, office or hybrid working are a matter of individual and collective negotiation – not management imposition. This booklet provides union reps with guidance on the issues that should be addressed when negotiating an agreement, such as who pays the costs of homeworking and ensuring remote workers are kept healthy and safe, protected from oppressive monitoring and managed fairly.
