The TUC and Working Families are hosting a launch for a book called The Flexibility Paradox by Dr Heejung Chung on Wednesday 20 April at 1400.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, flexible working has become the norm for many workers. But we know there is still much work to do to get fair flexibility for everyone.
In her new book, Dr Chung uses data from around the world to offer an original examination of the gendered impacts of flexible working. Bectu officials and reps are invited to attend the launch to discuss Dr Chung’s research and what her findings mean for organisations campaigning on flexible working and those who want to strengthen flexible working rights.
All those attending will receive a 50% discount on the book.
Dr Chung is a leading academic from University of Kent specialising in labour market patterns and outcomes across Europe. More specifically she is interested in exploring gender inequalities in the labour market and at home, and the role different policies such as flexible working arrangements have in changing these relationships.
