British Marx that allows government workers to break “Marxist” union strikes

Transport Minister Grant Shapps is considering a legislative amendment that allows the UK government to replace impressive staff with agency workers to protect the public from the turmoil caused by unions led by “Marxists.” Said that.

The move will apply to all sectors, overturning the legal restrictions introduced under former Labor Prime Minister Tony Blair that prevent employers from hiring agency workers to strike. Let’s go.

The law amendment was promised in the 2015 Conservative Manifest of former Prime Minister David Cameron, and the government “meansless bans employers from hiring agency staff to provide the necessary compensation during strikes. We will remove the restrictions. “

The Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers’ Union (RMT) announced on June 21, 23 and 25 that it would “close” the national rail network. “

In an interview with The Sunday Telegraph, Chaps said: These strikes are very premature and use all possible means, especially to ensure that the public is protected in the future. “

“Even if the union insists on exposing the country to considerable pain in the meantime, we cannot overemphasize our determination to ultimately bring the right results to travelers,” he said.

Mr. Chaps said workers were confused by union leaders. In it, he “is a very extreme Marxist and is determined to turn this into some sort of battle with the Tory government.”

Mr. Chaps told The Sunday Telegraph in May that ministers are considering enacting a law that would make industrial activities illegal unless a certain number of employees are working.

The minister wrote to The Sun on Sunday, stating that workers could also be banned from working overtime to recoup wages lost during the strike.

“Railway managers and ministers are determined to prevent the system from being milked to maintain income while the striker is miserable to the public,” he wrote.

The union responded with anger to the government’s plans.

“Allowing agency staff on behalf of workers on strike would undermine their rights to strike and be very reckless,” said Paul Nowak, deputy secretary of TUC.

RMT General Secretary Mick Lynch said: “We already have the most restrictive anti-democratic trade union law in Western Europe. Possible.”
