What's next? Well, we’ve seen this week that the campaign against the bill is getting the government worried. They’ve been forced into some smaller concessions already, and lost their first vote on an amendment in the House of Lords. Now a leaked letter on Monday showed they recognise they’ll lose more if they don’t make more concessions.
We need to keep up the pressure. The concessions the letter shows they’re considering are a step, but they’re certainly not enough. This is a bad bill right the way through, and we’re going to oppose it in its entirety.This week is heartunions week – a campaign week to celebrate the great work done by unions and their members in workplaces everywhere, and to highlight the damage the trade union bill would do to our rights, our economy and our society if it goes ahead. There’s lots more you can do to get involved with the week – check out the site at http://heartunions.org
