Labour Market and Economic Reports

Share this Page

The TUC produces a monthly Labour Market Report, providing ongoing analysis of labour market trends and forecasts, and some of the facts behind the headlines. In our bi-monthly Economic Reports we also consider the wider economic context, with a special focus on a different policy issue every month.

You can also read TUC policy officers' comments on the issues in the report series and the ongoing economic situation at the TUC public policy blog: www.touchstoneblog.org.uk
