The Trade Union Bill is the biggest attack on workers' rights for 30 years. With the government proposing new plans to criminalize picketing, permit employers to hire strike-breaking agency staff and choke off the flow of union funds to the Labour party, it is clear that this Bill has nothing to do with curbing "excessive strike action".
Please join us for a discussion led by Rob Johnstone - former Regional Secretary of the TUC and now the Policy And Campaigns Officer for the West Midlands, regarding the real aims and objectives of this iniquitous legislation, what it says about the state of our society and political economy, and to discuss possible methods of resistance should it be passed into law.
As with all KKST meetings, this discussion is open to all Labour Party members as well as our Affiliated and Registered Supporters, and not just those from Newcastle under Lyme CLP. All that we ask is that you please RSVP so that we know how many people are likely to come along.
