Future of Rail

Future of Rail one day conference
Thursday 7 March 2019
Central London

TSSA presents a one-day event focusing on the technological and operational changes that are taking place in the rail industry as a result of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

This cutting-edge event on the future of the rail sector will provide a solid basis for further detailed joint discussions between the trade unions, employers & other sector partners as well as company specific negotiations on how staff requirements and workforce development plans will be affected over the next decade and beyond.

TSSA will present our research in these areas with our vision of the absolute necessity for prioritisation of re-training, upskilling and planned technology procurement. Participants will also look to hear from key stakeholders about their response to these changes for the sector and have a rare opportunity to influence the debate.

Discussion at event will also feed into TSSA’s preparation of workshops for our reps equipping them to negotiate on the issues arising from the burgeoning skills gaps and shortages in the workplace at this time heralding massive change.
