UK's largest trade union Boss urges peers to blocks the Trade Union Bill and calls it 'mindless anti-worker legislation'.

Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey said: "Yet another government body- the Equalities and Human Rights Commission -  feels that it has to speak out against a bill already rubbished as 'not fit for purpose' by another advisory body and decried as spiteful, needless and unworkable by managers and former ministers.

"This is mindless anti-worker legislation that nobody wants or sees a case for apart from the Tories. The Nasty Party never went away.  Their mission now is to make UK workers the among least protected in the western world.

“The Lords should do the decent thing and sling this bill where it belongs, in the bin."
