Trade Bill Would Allow Dodgy Deals That Put Workers At Risk, Says TUC
Commenting on the government’s trade bill published today (Tuesday), TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“Liam Fox has rushed out a ramshackle bill that barely pays lip service to the consultation his department ran. It shows how little he cares about the views of Britain’s workers and British industry.
“The bill offers no protection for workers’ rights. It offers no protection for public services like the NHS. And it would let ministers push though dodgy deals.
“Liam Fox must not be allowed to undermine our chances of getting a good deal with the EU by wheeler-dealing with countries that lack proper protections for workers. The trade bill must guarantee that the price of entry to a trade deal involving Britain is signing up to the strongest protections for workers and public services.”
