TUC publishes new polling which shows overwhelming support for new deal for working people
The highlight of this week's TUC Congress 2023 being held in Liverpool, was today's speech from Deputy leader of the Labour Party and future deputy PM if all goes to plan at the General Election next year.
Here is her complete speech:
Commenting on the deputy Labour leader’s speech, TUC General Secretary Paul Nowak said:
“Labour’s transformative New Deal for Working People stands in stark contrast to the Tories’ dire record on workers’ rights and pay. The Conservatives have presided over an explosion in insecure work and the longest pay squeeze in modern history. And they are now launching a full-scale attack on the right to strike.
The country desperately needs a fresh start. British voters across the political spectrum want more security and fairer treatment at work. Make no mistake. Implementing the New Deal would be the biggest upgrade in workers’ rights in a generation.
It’s time for change – and Angela has set out clearly and passionately how a Labour government would deliver that change.”
Overwhelming support for Labour’s New Deal
The TUC has today (Tuesday) published new polling which reveals overwhelming support for Labour’s New Deal for Working People.
And there is strong support for collective rights too, including:
All of these policies are in Labour’s new deal for working people – which the TUC says will be “transformative” and “the biggest upgrade in workers’ rights in a generation”.
Labour has pledged to deliver new rights for working people in an employment bill in its first 100 days.
