    The Change We Need: How a Starmer Government can Transform Britain

    Edited by Clive Efford MP and Liam Byrne MP

    "The Tribune Group of Labour MPs has held a series of discussions over the last year in order to give members of the Parliamentary Labour Party a space to discuss the issues that a future Labour government will need to confront; and to consider the challenges that our party faces in convincing people that we can deliver the radical solutions needed."

    "We have been lucky to be able to call upon a number of specialists from a wide range of expertise in social and economic policy. They shared our concerns, but more significantly, were eager to share their opinions on how to deal with them. Like us, they also wanted to create a space where their ideas could be debated."

    Sharing the Future: Workers and Technology in the 2020s

    Yvette Cooper

    "Technology is already fast changing the world of work – creating remarkable new opportunities but also serious dangers of widening inequality and injustice unless we act. The Covid-19 crisis makes those dangers much more acute. Government, employers and unions cannot stand back and watch while inequality grows. We need urgent action now to make sure all workers benefit and that we use technology to rebuild a fairer, stronger, greener economy instead. That is what this report is all about."
