Dear Colleague

I am writing to share information about industrial action that Prospect members working for Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) will be taking from 11 December 2019 onwards.
Members in London, Basingstoke and York will be on strike on 11 December and members based in Northampton will begin a period of work to rule. All MOLA members will continue the work to rule from 12 December onwards.

Rights under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) regulations apply to the broader category of worker, rather than just employees, an employment tribunal has ruled.

This is the first time that it has been accepted that the regulations apply to the wider group of workers – including freelancers, contractors, interns and others on atypical working arrangements.

1676 FeatureProspect vice president Ele Wade said technology has been changing the world of work for centuries and this has created challenges and opportunities for workers. “The challenge for our time is how we handle the use of data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning,” she said. She pointed to a growing awareness of bias becoming embedded in algorithms. New tech could be used to monitor workers or replace them; or it could be used to make work safer and more interesting as artificial intelligence takes on monotonous tasks. Prospect is already seeing the impact of this technology in areas as diverse as nuclear decommissioning and climate science. Wade argued that it is our job as trade unionists to put workers in the driving seat of this change, including by helping to develop tech workers’ collective voice such as those in the recent Google walkouts. A recent poll by Prospect found that 58% of workers felt they have no say in the implementation of new tech at work. Ele concluded by saying that although this seems like “daunting new territory”, unions have the experience to improve the working lives of these workers.
