Unite vows to defend workers from Tory attack on right to strike

A “predictable” attack from a Government that wants the country to take a pay cut

Commenting on the transport secretary's plans to introduce the Transport Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill, Unite general secretary Sharon Graham said: “This is just another predictable attack on trade unions from a failing Government that expects the country to take a pay cut. It’s always workers and communities that pay the price.

“We can all see whose side they are on and their long-term direction of travel. Now it is time to start asking the question – who is this economy for?”

“Unite is prepared for all eventualities. We will defend workers.”
