Trades unions and the Sub-National Review

At a time when significant changes were underway in the institutional framework for regional economic development, including a ‘more strategic’ role for Regional Development Agencies and a bigger role for local authorities, the North West TUC commissioned us to draft a briefing ( pdf 337KB) for the TUC website. This summarised the then Government’s proposals for implementing the Sub-National Review of Economic Development and Regeneration and the wider policy context including proposals for learning and skills budgets. Opportunities for trades unions to influence policy and investment were highlighted and explored in a workshop with trade union officers. The briefing mapped key organisations and partnerships in the North West and set out trade union involvement in these. It also provided a full listing of relevant partnerships and developments within the region.
