On 10 December 2016 we launched Working Conversations?, a series of educational videos produced through a partnership between Implicated Theatre and London Metropolitan University as part of the IR Multiling project.
Members of Implicated Theatre and UNITE union worked together with researchers from London Metropolitan University to devise and produce six films aimed at migrant workers highlighting different issues they might face working in Europe today.
The films are translated into six languages and are designed to be used in training with migrant workers, trade unions and other organisations promoting good practice in industrial relations with migrant workers.
This open workshop introduced the films and how they could be used for members of UNITE’s Migrant Workers Education Programme.
The IR Multiling project was funded for two years by the EU and was aimed at researching multilingualism at work and its impact on industrial relations in six European countries: France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Spain and the UK. The project focused on migrant workers and, in particular, the role of trade unions. London Metropolitan University was the UK partner that launched their research on 28 November 2016.
