TUC dismisses governmentâ€™s â€śflimsyâ€ť workersâ€™ rights proposals
Commenting on new government proposals on employment rights announced today (Tuesday), TUC General Secretary Frances Oâ€™Grady said:
â€śThe prime minister has made a mockery of her own claim that Britain is leading the way on workersâ€™ rights.
â€ťThese are flimsy procedural tweaks. They come nowhere close to ensuring existing rights are protected. And they wonâ€™t stop workersâ€™ rights in the UK from falling behind those in the rest of Europe.
â€śWhatâ€™s more, thereâ€™s nothing to stop a future right-wing government tearing up this legislation altogether.
â€śMPs must not be taken in by this blatant window dressing. Our hard-won rights are still under threat.â€ť
