Motion text

That this House notes with deep concern proposals contained in the CBI report on the UK Labour Market published on 21 June 2010; further notes that the UK already has some of the toughest legal restrictions on the right to strike in the advanced world; believes that these restrictive proposals are unnecessary and unfair and agrees with the Trades Union Congress that the CBI proposals add up to a charter for exploitation by unscrupulous employers; recognises that free and independent trades unions are a force for good in UK society; and further believes that there should be no further weakening of trade union rights restricting their ability to protect workers and ensure fairness at work.
