Trade Union Health and Safety must be prioritised & strengthened with Brexit looming
Urge the TUC to strengthen trade union partnerships and put prime focus on individual unions to prioritise and increase focus on their individual H&S departments & structures, this is in readiness for post brexit Britain and it's workforce.
Why is this important?
HEALTH & SAFETY was the main reason for the birth of the trade union movement. There is no doubt with the current government attack on trade unions and a possible all out onslaught when we arrive at ‘post Brexit’ Britain, Trade Unions will no doubt find the coming years increasingly difficult.
For this reason alone TRADE UNIONS must immediately prioritise H&S now and strengthen links with other unions. Every individual worker has the right to a safe & healthy working environment. Workers are better protected with a strong & robust union that adopt a prime focus on Health & Safety at work.
