App-Workers Organizing: Global Perspectives

Thursday, November 12, 2020

570 Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10022

Join us for a one-day international forum on the topic of policy and organizational solutions to the challenges of the "app-based" economy. 

The expansion of digital hiring platforms (e.g. Uber, Instacart) across the economy has disrupted the legal framework for labor and employment relations, giving rise to intense debate among labor advocates, policymakers, businesses, and scholars about how to provide protections for app-based workers. 

In this one day conference, stakeholders from across the United States and abroad will share their experiences and research on strategies for advancing worker protections and collective representation in the digital platform economy. 

Participants include representatives from labor groups that are currently engaged in efforts to organize or represent app-based workers in the United States and in foreign countries, as well as scholars who have conducted research on these issues.
