If the Government is serious about building back better, then that means levelling up on workers’ rights

GMB union has responded to reports UK workers’ rights are at risk in Government secret plans to rip up EU labour standards.

Warren Kenny, Acting General Secretary, GMB said:

“This Government made promises to protect and not weaken workers’ rights.

“If Ministers are serious about building back better, then that means levelling up on rights at work.

“If this leak is anything to go by the Government is not only tearing up its election promises but worse still taking a sledgehammer to workers’ rights while workers are facing down a pandemic in the middle of the worst economic crisis in all of our lifetimes. This would be unforgiveable.”

“GMB won’t stand by if the Government forces workers to work longer hours and lose paid holiday.

“Our workers across the UK deserve better.”
