Green Party at TUC Congress 2016
The Green Party, and the Green Party Trade Union Group, made an impact at this year’s Trades Union Congress in Brighton, promoting the Green Party and its policies for workers’ rights and Trade Unions.
Green Party co-Leader Jonathan Bartley spoke at the Congress and spoke about both the importance of Trade Unions, and about his wish to work with them to secure a progressive alliance for electoral reform.
Green Party unanimously opposes Trade Union Act and calls for new rights for unions to access workplaces
GPTU made an enormous splash at Green Party Autumn Conference, getting its two policies – which were ranked at the top of the agenda in 1st and 5th place – passed unaminously by Green Party members.
This means that the Green Party has overwhelmingly backed proposals to stand against the Conservatives’ Trade Union Act and to give Trade Unions new rights to access workplaces.
We hope to see you on Wednesday, or at another event very soon!
