New Jimmy Reid Foundation working paper on automation – friend or foe?

The Jimmy Reid Foundation is pleased to publication the working paper, ‘Automation – friend or foe?’ by the Unite Scotland Politics, Research and Campaigns Unit on the eve of the 120th STUC Congress (in Aviemore). The paper (available here) assesses a number of contending claims (positive, negative, neutral) on the implications of advanced forms of new technology for workers’ jobs and incomes. The paper forms a key part of the rationale for a motion to be moved by Unite Scotland to the Congress. The significance of this was picked by the Sunday Herald newspaper today.
