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