Rights at work – delivered by Europe, threatened by the Tories

27 Mar 2009, by in International, Politics, Working Life

There’s a brilliant short new video on the Unions Together website which sets out three of the key workers’ rights delivered through the European Union, and which David Cameron wants to scrap by withdrawing from the Social Chapter. Parental leave, equal treatment for atypical workers (like agency workers) and annual holidays are the examples picked. Does David Cameron really think it’s popular politics, or even sensible for the economy, to want to scrap these rights? If you’re worried that he will do it anyway, just to satisfy his euro-sceptic wing, sign the Unions Together petition on workers’ rights.

    Yes and who is it that cannot allow normal working hours, or real working hours. Labour, so I not be throwing stones in green houses, New labour has in the past followed the Tories , so Browns Little brain might be saying now, lets go follow the Tories, those Tory swing voter might win me an election.

    Sorry but I do not trust new Labour anymore
