Urgent Petition To Prioritise Health & Safety At Work - TUC And All Trade Unions

A large group of CWU ASRs and USRs are urging all those concerned with Health & Safety in the workplace and who believe that Brexit will mean the end of much of our H&S at work legislation and the rights of Trade Unions to organise and promote good health, safety and welfare practices, policies and procedures backed up by strong legislation for workers; have set up this petition aimed at all workers in order to send a clear message to ALL Trade Unions, and the TUC, that now is precisely the time we need to greatly beef-up our health & safety structures, policies and resources around the one main reason for the existence of Trade Unions.

Please sign our 38 Degrees petition as detailed below

To: Workers in the UK

Trade Union Health and Safety must be prioritised & strengthened with Brexit looming

Urge the TUC to strengthen trade union partnerships and put prime focus on individual unions to prioritise and increase focus on their individual H&S departments & structures, this is in readiness for post Brexit Britain and it's workforce.

Why is this important?

HEALTH & SAFETY was the main reason for the birth of the trade union movement. There is no doubt with the current government attack on trade unions and a possible all out onslaught when we arrive at ‘post Brexit’ Britain, Trade Unions will no doubt find the coming years increasingly difficult. 

For this reason alone TRADE UNIONS must immediately prioritise H&S now and strengthen links with other unions. Every individual worker has the right to a safe & healthy working environment. Workers are better protected with a strong & robust union that adopt a prime focus on Health & Safety at work.
