POLITICAL SUPPORT BEHIND WORKPLACE DISPUTES TO PUT PRESSURE ON INTRANSIGENT EMPLOYERS FIGHTING FOR JOBS
In the last two years our political work has paid dividends in this region with successful campaigns to, save jobs and stop closures such as Bombardier, ABC council and Harland Wolff in Northern Ireland and Cammell Laird on Merseyside to name just a few.
It is now around 100 days since lockdown and the health and safety along with the lives of our members and the public has been the major battle for us. The aftermath in economic terms now needs to be brought into focus as we face a major new challenge. Redundancies.
In tackling the threat of cut backs by employers and government, we need to use all options to try and avoid redundancies at every opportunity.
