The Leeds Index is an interactive, global employment relations analysis tool at the forefront of documenting platform workers’ protest actions around the world. It is the first tool that allows an understanding of the size of protest globally, documenting actions, from strikes and log-offs to demonstrations and legal court cases in the platform economy. The Leeds Index team capture where protest is happening; which companies are most involved; and the motives behind platform workers’ protest.
This hybrid event will introduce the Leeds Index and explore to what extent it can be used by the public and other academics. The tool will be presented, some findings will be shared, and a Q&A will take place with distinguished speakers who will comment on its innovative capacity for different audiences.
The Launch of the Leeds Index is aimed at academics, labour activists, trade unions, policymakers and those interested in platform work.
