The theme is Good health and safety for all workers whoever they are and will focus on inequalities in occupational health and the role unions play in narrowing the inequalities gap.
The TUC will particularly want to focus on the hidden and new "gig economies", the risks faced by migrant workers and the issues of gender and class.
