The Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices
We welcome the 7 principles set out in the Taylor review of modern working practices, launched last week.
Our goal of good work for all is ambitious and involves concerted action ranging from specific changes in the short term to longer term strategic shifts. We advocate change but in doing so we seek to build on the distinctive strengths of our existing labour market and framework of regulation; the British way. It is inevitable that public concern focusses on the things that are seen to be going wrong or areas where it is believed that the UK lags behind other countries. But we are more likely to succeed in achieving a good work economy if we build upon our existing national strengths and seek to go further through the modern industrial strategy.
