Attack on union reps defeated
Earlier today I blogged about MP and former investment banker Jesse Norman’s 10 Minute Rule Bill attacking union reps. I’m pleased to report that Mr Norman’s motion was defeated by 79 votes. You can read Jesse Norman’s speech introducing the Bill, and John Healey’s response on TheyWorkForYou.
Such is the deep seated antipathy towards unions felt by the likes of Mr Norman and the determination of the Taxpayers Alliance and TURC to persecute workplace reps that I’m certain that this wont be the end of their attacks. For now though we should celebrate this small victory for workplace reps, employees and employers.
