Episode 3: Independent Workers Union of Great Britain
Broadcast Live on 4 May 2020
Guests: Henry Chango Lopez
In this episode we are joined by Henry Chango Lopez, president of the Independent Workers’ Union of Great Britain (IWGB) which was founded in 2012 and represents mainly low paid migrant workers, such as outsourced cleaners and security guards, workers in the so-called “gig economy”, such as bicycle couriers and Uber drivers, and foster care workers. The IWGB specializes in representing sections of the workforce which have traditionally been non-unionised and under-represented.
