We set out to ask how we can use new, emerging technology to strengthen the voice of workers. WeClock aims to do just that. It offers a privacy-preserving way to empower workers and unions in their battle for decent work.
We, the workers and unions, need to respect and uphold privacy rights and human dignity while telling our stories. If we don’t, we let companies define work according to their industry definitions.
WeClock gives an indication of the present and changing nature of work: the presence or absence of decent or fair work, working conditions, or work/life balance. Built with workers in mind, WeClock empowers change.
A full survey of tools designed by and for trade unions to correct this imbalance
Behind this work is a dedicated team of activists: UNI Global Union’s Young Workers’ Lab together with Guardian Project and Okthanks.
Researchers from Harvard University’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, world-leading digital experts and trade union organisers from across the world have supported and advised us along the way.
