Defend The Right To Strike

Defend The Right To Strike

Reconsider changing the anti-Trade Union laws and the right to strike. This will be a massive step backwards in democracy.

Why is this important?

Workers' rights must be protected, and not left wide open to exploitation by Government, multinational corporations and unscrupulous employers.

Plans for the biggest shake-up of strike rules in 30 years would make holding dodgy employers to account almost impossible. Please sign the petition to stop the government sweeping away our rights at work now.


Reasons for signing

  • SADLY STRIKE ACTION IS OFTEN THE ONLY ACTION THAT CAN WIN PAY AWARDS AND OTHER WORK PLACE BENFITS
  • its my democratic right
  • This must stop. Save our services from privatisation.

Please support this petition. The UK Government are rushing through proposals to further squeeze the Trade Union laws... as if they aren't tight enough already.
