Trade Union Bill Committee Stage: The Government's Unwillingness to Come Under Scrutiny Should Not Have Been a Surprise
Committee stage continues this week where I will be going through the legislation, line by line, with colleagues to pick apart the provisions in the bill. Like last week, I'm sure there will be times when I'm left feeling frustrated but one thing is certain - I, along with my Labour Party colleagues, will continue to stand strong in opposition to this bill.
Instead of taking pity on workers who have been forced to take strike action as a final resort in a last ditch attempt to get the conditions at work that they deserve, the Tories have chosen to demonise them. Make no mistake about it, this proves more than ever that the Tories have their sights set firmly on Britain's six million trade unionists.
