RMT on Queen's Speech attack on unions

RMT Press Office

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: "This Queen's Speech confirms that the Tories are hell-bent on ratcheting up their anti-union laws. That is nothing new and these plans will continue to meet the fiercest possible resistance.

This is the clearest possible case of one law for the political class and another for the working class. Only a tiny handful of the hypocrites advocating these ballot thresholds has ever been elected on the same kind of percentages they are demanding in a strike vote.

"The front line of defence against cuts and austerity is the organised working class and that is why the Tories and big business want to tighten the legal noose around our necks. That’s the same as it ever was and they will have a fight on their hands. "
