The Government ’s Elections Bill is designed to mute our Labour and Union movement and rig the rules in favour of the Tories. The Bill is widely recognised as highly flawed. There is cross party objection to this Bill. The Conservative-dominated Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee published a report 13th December that called on the government to stop the passage of the Elections Bill.
The report expresses deep concerns about how the government is rushing legislation through parliament and recognises trade unions’ concerns about the chilling affect the Bill has on their ability to organise.
The Bill has now move to the House of Lords. Over the next few months, Unions will play a leading role in lobbying peers of all parties and crossbenchers to back amendments to remove the most damaging parts of the legislation – but only if we can keep the issue on the agenda.
