TUC dismisses governmentâs âflimsyâ workersâ rights proposals
Commenting on new government proposals on employment rights announced today (Tuesday), TUC General Secretary Frances OâGrady said:
âThe prime minister has made a mockery of her own claim that Britain is leading the way on workersâ rights.
âThese are flimsy procedural tweaks. They come nowhere close to ensuring existing rights are protected. And they wonât stop workersâ rights in the UK from falling behind those in the rest of Europe.
âWhatâs more, thereâs nothing to stop a future right-wing government tearing up this legislation altogether.
âMPs must not be taken in by this blatant window dressing. Our hard-won rights are still under threat.â
