SYP UK Chair 2016, Zara Markland, said of the BookMachine/Unite 'United, We Publish' events:
“The previous event in 2015 provided an introduction and an insight into the valuable role trade unions play in publishing and journalism. Everyone at the event I talked to said they really enjoyed learning how the trade union was relevant to their role and that they came away with lots of information and knowledge about their rights in the workplace. I certainly felt personally more empowered, more aware and completely enthused to help improve working conditions within the industry. This event I'm sure will be just as insightful, especially with Owen Jones on board with his first hand knowledge and insight. I can't wait! ”
