Episode 13: Do we live to work or work to live?

Do you have a fair work-life balance? Have you experienced work-related stress or burnout? Are you concerned about the increase in the pension age?

In this episode, we look at how the planned increase of the pension age has become a key general election issue, spearheaded by SIPTU. Our guest Ethel Buckley talks about the #Stop67 campaign and how it has mobilised activists and trade union members. 

We look at work-life balance and why it’s one of the health and safety issues of the century. We ask what can be done to prevent overwork, burnout and stress? We talk to Gareth Murphy of Financial Services Union, about what the “right to disconnect” and ask what workplace polices should be introduced.
