Responding to the government’s threat to change the law to allow agency workers to be used to break strikes, Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “If the government continues to fly this ‘false flag’, then the trade union movement must be ready to respond.

“Workers have had enough of being told by the rich and powerful to meekly accept what they are given. It is profiteering corporations, not ordinary workers who are driving the latest surge in inflation and making fools of us all.

“Rather than attack the rights of workers, it is high time that politicians of all parties argued for a cap on profits not pay. Why is it ok for faceless corporations to rip off the public through price gouging but not for workers to take action to defend their living standards?

“With UK workers already subject to the most restrictive labour laws in Europe, as a nation we need to think again about in whose interests we want our economy to run.”
