PROTECT THE RIGHT TO STRIKE PUBLIC MEETING
7.30 pm, Monday October 12th at Chesterfield Labour Club, 113 Saltergate, Chesterfield, S40 1NF
Guest Speaker: Lee Barron (Secretary, Midlands Region TUC)
This autumn, MPs and peers will discuss the Trade Union Bill which threatens the basic right to strike. For the first time, employers will be able to break strikes by bringing in agency workers. The bill proposes huge restrictions on peaceful picketing and protests. Striking workers will have to tell their employer all their plans – including what they will post on Facebook – two weeks before they strike. The Bill also imposes “ supermajorities” on strike ballots as well as many other restrictions on trade unionists carrying out their duties to represent members.
Come along to find out more about the threat the Trade Union Bill poses to our right to organise effectively and join the discussion about how we can mobilise effectively to stop these proposals.
