Congress will hear a new report on the billions of pounds outsourced in local government contracts, research into the effect of a no deal Brexit on family shopping, the profits made by water companies 30 years on from privatisation, research into the care sector - attacks on care workers and the vast number of people in debt from social care, behind the scenes stories from Heathrow security, a study into gender inequality in the construction industry and previously unseen figures into the millions Amazon receive from UK taxpayers.

GMB Congress will welcome around a thousand people, from various professions and sectors, to Brighton. Media who want to attend GMB Congress 2018, contact the press office to ask about accreditation.
