Automation

Two weeks ago at our inaugural event IndEx 2019 in Miami, our partner, AlixPartners moderated a session on the impact of automation on the workforce and society.

The session was titled “Is the Goal Smarter Workers or No Workers at All.” Participating on the panel was Jerry Dias, National President of Unifor. Unifor is Canada’s largest private sector union with 310,000 members, or ~ close to 1% of Canada’s population in sectors from manufacturing to media.

In light of this week’s news, including the layoffs at Ford, EU Elections and departure of Theresa May, we think you’ll find Jerry’s insights pretty timely!
