    Why when the Tories have announced the biggest attacks on trade union rights in a generation, which could be seen coming a mile off (hint: it was very well publicised in the lead up to the election!) is the CTUF only having a 2 hour AGM, where the new laws are item 7 on the agenda!?

    Why not have an emergency meeting, lengthen the time of the AGM and have a political discussion about what to do about the new laws first on the agenda as it will shape the campaign’s activity for the next year?

      This was an AGM to deal with admin matters and to agree the programme for the next 12 months. So you can be assured we have agreed to make the TU Bill a major piece of work for this year along with the new trade agreements and their effect on Employment Rights and Collective Bargaining. There will be meetings this year on the TU Bill and the other issues including at Durham, Tolpuddle, in the regions and at at the TUC and Labour Party.

      We will be putting together campaigning material on the TU Bill – once we have seen the full scope of the law. There will be changes not included in the Queens Speech. So visit the site and you can keep updated.

      Tony B
