Dear David Cameron, our rights at work are not 'red tape'!

 

Ninety five Conservative MPs have called for the UK to have an opt-out for every single piece of European law. They want to "lift EU burdens on business" and "disapply the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights".

 

That would mean that a UK government could scrap many of the rights at work we rely on – rights that are guaranteed by Europe. Rights like:

 

  • four weeks paid leave
  • equal treatment for agency workers
  • rights for mums, like time off for ante-natal appointments.

 

TULO (the Trade Union and Labour Party Liaison Organisation) has started an online petition to tell Cameron it's time to start listening to working Britain - and stop negotiating to tear our rights at work apart.
