Government sides with exploitative bosses

Following the new Business Secretary Sajid Javid’s remarks over changes to strike laws that are to be included in the Queen’s Speech UNISON General Secretary Dave Prentis said:

“The government has only been in power a matter of days and it has already come down on the side of exploitative bosses.

“These unfair proposals will make it virtually impossible for working people to stand up to their employers when anything goes wrong at work.

“Bad employers will be rubbing their hands together in glee, safe in the knowledge that they can now pretty much treat their staff as they choose – without having to worry about the threat of industrial action.”
