On Monday 10 October, the Free Our Unions campaign and Earth Strike/Empower the Unions are holding an assembly and protest at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in London to oppose the threat of new anti-trade union laws that Liz Truss, in the context of the strike wave, has signalled as one of her top priorities.
The Green Party Trade Union Group is supporting the call to demonstrate, and encourages all members and supporters to attend and make their voices heard.
The campaigns are also demanding the scrapping of all existing anti-union laws and their replacement with strong workers’ rights. We demand the right to strike and picket freely, including in solidarity with other workers and over political issues like the climate crisis.
As various voices across the trade union movement have noted, new and existing anti-union laws prevent us from legally taking strike action on issues relating to social and environmental issues. We need to empower our union to challenge and abolish these laws or break them.
