THE TRADE UNION CO-ORDINATING GROUP
The Tories’ Trade Union Bill represents the biggest attack on the Labour and trade union movement since Thatcher.
Our ability to organise collectively in the workplace is a major obstacle to their austerity attacks. The right to strike is a fundamental human right, and a key part of any democratic society.
These extreme plans would crush the ability of working people to defend their living standards and drive through the Government’s austerity programme.
They would also smash the political funds of trade unions, in order to deny us any voice. It’s vital that we fight back.
Kill the Bill!
