The Future Of Work

Australian Workers Film Guide


Presented by Tony Sheldon, National Secretary of the Transport Workers Union (TWU), this short video highlights the threat of insecure gig economy jobs and widespread automation in the transportation industry. With over 30% of workers in the US and Europe now working in the on-demand economy, workers are missing out on decent wages, sick pay and holiday pay, as well as protection from redundancy. The video shows a number of on-demand delivery drivers talking about their lack of basic conditions, before moving on to explore the potential impact of automation on the transport sector. Here we see driverless buses and trucks being tested in Europe. The presenter calls for the right to unionise and for worker protections to be implemented as we enter the future of work.
