GWAIA - Guide for Workplace Reps

Artificial Intelligence and other algorithmic systems are transforming work, management and models of business across all sectors. At IFOW, we developed the Good Work Algorithmic Impact Assessment (GWAIA) to involve workers in the anticipation of risks and opportunities, the actions to mitigate those risks and maximise the benefits of any opportunities for workers, and in the ongoing monitoring of these new systems.

This practical guide for workplace representatives - developed for the TUC - is designed to equip union reps to undertake the GWAIA process. It is published in parallel with our comprehensive guidance that lays out the legal underpinning for the process, and how it can be used in a collective bargaining process.
