Get better workers in a time leading to change (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

amendment

Here is my best explanation:

'change' is the definition.

(amendment is a kind of change)

'get better workers in a time leading' is the subsidiary indication.

'get better' becomes 'mend' ('mend' can be a synonym of 'get better').

'workers' becomes 'men' (man is a kind of worker).

'in' indicates putting letters inside.

'leading' suggests taking the first letters.

The initial letter of 'time' is 't'.

'mend'+'men'='mendmen'

'a'+'t'='at'

'mendmen' placed into 'at' is 'amendment'.

'to' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for amendment that I've seen before include "Addition or alteration, to a motion or official document, say", "Statement added to or revising a document", "Minor improvement", "Change designed to improve a text", "Alteration made in a formal document" and "Correction".)
