“..sector-wide collective bargaining will set minimum and legally binding pay, terms and conditions for every employer and every worker in the sector.”

iPhone : This is why Jeremy Corbyn plans on collective bargaining matter so much. Compare bargaining coverage across Europe (green high, red low) with income inequality (lighter better, darker worse) @LauraPidcockMP

iPhone : One year ago the women of Glasgow made history.

Today we continue our fight for equal pay for every worker. #EqualPay

Twitter Media Studio : [Boris Johnson #StayAlert] once said employment regulation was back breaking and he voted for the 2016 anti-trade union Act, which stripped away employment protections and the provisions in the Bill offer no real protection at all. - Jeremy Corbyn during #PMQs today.

iPhone : Important to note that the Comprehensive Economic & Trade Agreement (CETA)(suggested model for the EU/UK Free Trade Agreement) offers no protections for workers’ rights, merely a woolly declaration of support for ILO standards, not made binding on or enforceable against employers

iPhone : Labour is not prepared to sell out the communities that we represent.

We will reject Boris Johnsons #SellOutDeal.

iPhone : We simply can’t gift Boris Johnson #StayAlert & his Thatcherite colleagues the power to rip up the basic protections that people have. I understand the weariness people feel over this process, but we cannot let that get in the way of putting working people first: mirror.co.uk/news/politics/…

iPhone : A Thread: The Tories tell us to trust them on the brexit deal. To trust them on workers rights. To trust them on environmental protections. The stark reality for any MP voting today is you can never trust a Tory.....

Twitter Web App : Boris Johnson is hiding something. We cant trust him.

Twitter Media Studio : Good that Govt have finally acknowledged need for legislation on tips, albeit 4 years too late & in a pre-election period. The Labour Party in Govt will go so much further, transforming the relations between employer and employee, so decent pay, protections & rights at work are the norm

Hear Unite’s Dave Turnbull talk about unfair tipping practices including at Carluccio’s (at 22:41)

Its almost the first anniversary of the government’s promise to legislate to tackle bad employment practices. It’s still NOT LAW!

Twitter Media Studio : Higher levels of collective bargaining will lead, not only to a more egalitarian society, but a more successful economy. This is the model followed by Germany & Scandinavian countries & this is what the Ministry of Employment Rights will deliver. Thanks to IER for the video.

iPhone : Johnson criticised Corbyn and Labour for wanting to implement a four day week (the policy is actually to reduce average working hours)...so the PM wants people in the UK to continue to have some of the longest working hours in Europe🤷‍♀️

iPhone : We know that pay stagnation & income inequality are a direct result of the attack on workers’ ability to organise through their trade union. The best way to reverse this trend, to feel freer to express your opinion & realise your rights is to join a trade union. #TUC2019
