JEREMY CORBYN will take the first step towards replacing the Tories’ brand new Trade Union Act today when he launches Labour’s Workplace 2020 initiative.
The Labour leader will kick-start the party’s “conversation” with working people with a speech at the Stroud headquarters of Ecotricity, a green energy firm and a living wage employer.
Mr Corbyn will be joined at the launch by shadow business secretary Angela Eagle and shadow trade unions minister Ian Lavery.
Individuals and trade unions will be able to submit ideas online at www.workplace2020.org.uk
The policies created from the consultation will replace the Trade Union Act if the Labour Party wins the next general election.
“Labour is starting the biggest discussion with working people and employers on what the world of work should look like in 2020,” the party said.
“We want to hear how we can work together to promote good practice and raise standards.”
