Following the comments from newly appointed Business Secretary, Sajid Javid regarding significant changes to strike laws,
Ravi Subramanian, UNISON West Midlands Regional Secretary said:
“This government has only been in power for a few days and already they are attacking workers,
Mr Javid, whose government was elected on just 36.9% of the vote is introducing second class democracy for workers.
At his first Cabinet meeting the prime minister said that they needed to focus on ‘bread and butter' ways of improving peoples lives’ but if restricting the rights of the average employee is a top priority then it is clear they are focusing on ‘Silver spoons and caviar’ for employers and private companies.”
