TUC Warns of Loss of Workers' Rights
A report issued by the TUC warns that workers' rights could be rolled back by a Conservative government. TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady said:
"Working people have a huge stake in the referendum because workers' rights are on the line. It's the EU that guarantees workers their rights to paid holidays, parental leave, equal treatment for part-timers, and much more."
According to the report these rights include "access to paid annual holidays, improved health and safety protection, rights to unpaid parental leave, rights to time off work for urgent family reasons, equal treatment rights for part-time, fixed-term and agency workers, rights for outsourced workers, and rights for workers' representatives to receive information and be consulted, particularly in the context of restructuring."
