As a Member of Parliament, I will vote against the Trade Union Bill. I know that trade union members don’t want to take strike action – besides anything you lose your pay when you do – but that sometimes it’s the only option you have left.
The right to take industrial action is just that: a basic right.
I will also oppose other unfair measures in this Bill such as the banning of check-off in the public sector, the attack on facility time and the assault on the ability of trade union members to campaign politically.
Note to MPs: your signature will be published as supporting our campaign.
