Organising for Migrant Workers Justice in the UK

Last year, in collaboration with other labour rights and farming organisations, the Landworkers’ Alliance produced a report looking into the structural drivers of labour exploitation in the UK’s industrial horticulture sector, and how supermarkets are reaping the rewards of this exploitation. The report revealed how the new UK seasonal worker immigration scheme is facilitating worker exploitation, and provided workers with a platform to recount their experiences of both abuse and resistance. In this session, Landworkers’ Alliance’s Catherine McAndrew will present the findings of this report and put forward a course of action for improving working conditions in British farming.
