Lobby to repeal anti-union laws

Submitted by Anon on 4 March, 2005 - 2:26

The United Campaign for the Repeal of the Anti-Union laws held a lobby of the House of Commons on 28 February. Representatives from TGWU, RMT and CWU called on Labour to include improvements in trade union rights in the Labour manifesto. They also pledged to keep fighting on the issue of repeal of the anti-union laws after the election.

Barry Camfield from the TGWU called for pan-union support to put this issue higher up the political agenda, including using political fund money for this task.

The meeting was hosted by John McDonnell, chair of the Labour Representation Committee.
