Document Abstract

All tomorrow's jobs: how robotics and new technology can create better work

Sets out the case for creating one million more manufacturing and high-tech jobs by 2030, arguing that sustainable industry and green technology could be key to delivery, together with productivity gains from artificial intelligence. Considers how automation and digitalisation affect work relationships and the role of trade unions in meeting associated challenges. Describes the role of a regional eco-system, in which a holistic approach improves innovation, upgrades the skills of the workforce and creates inclusive and sustainable social and territorial conditions. Reports on the energy revolution in Germany and discusses the digital challenge. Calls for the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to work for manufacturing employment; local eco-systems to support the delivery of employment-rich economic growth; new skills to be offered to those at risk of industrial disruption; for trade unions to be fully represented on the new Industry Strategy Council; and for the UK to remain in the EU single market and customs union.
