Somerset County Branch celebrates trade unions with Big Workplace Meeting event
As part of Hearts Union week, the Branch held a workplace meeting today which was very well attended. The country-wide video defending trade unions, presented by Frances O'Grady and Eddy Izzard, discussed the Trade Union Bill and the threat to workers' rights by this government. This was followed by a lively discussion, and awareness of trade unions in the community and the workplace was the key point raised. Everyone was encouraged to write to their MPs about the devastating effect of the Trade Union Bill if passed.
