Plans to restrict trade union work 'risk serious consequences' for staff


Yeah what did the Unions ever do for us?! They just gave the poor and the vulnerable, which they represented, minimum notices, redundancy payments, the equal pay act, race relations act, sex discrimination act... what evil people!!! Striking is supposed to hit all parts of society, it is the deprivation of labour which is supposed to hit their employers and force them to the negotiating table. It is a last resort. And lets get real, we're not America. Their politics and society have been destroyed by corporations and billionaires rigging the system. Deregulation and lower taxes are what allow them to make massive profits whilst also wrecking the world economy. Britain is heading towards a similar system. If John Smith is really saying that he's against Unions and political parties being funded by the tax payer then he's saying he's for special interests rigging the system for their own benefit. Having an investment in trade unions makes them accountable. And giving that the unions represent the people, how can you say that they are a bad thing?
