Motion text

That this House congratulates the 100,000 people who accessed learning at work last year via their trade union learning representative, and the union learning representatives who do such a valuable job in assisting them; further congratulates the Labour Government for the extension of the Union Learning Fund which is providing excellent value for money by enabling unions to reach out to those most in need of acquiring skills; and calls on the Government to investigate ways in which union learning representatives can do more to help people with low level skills, particularly in those companies which refuse to work with union learning representatives, by looking to make statutory provision for workplace learning committees to ensure that employers work with union learning representatives in a similar way in which they work with Health and Safety Representatives on statutory Health and Safety Committees.
