NASUWT: Tory ideological reform agenda continues
Thursday, 10 May 2012
Commenting on the Queen’s Speech, Chris Keates, General Secretary of the NASUWT, the largest teachers’ union, said:
“Despite the rhetoric, this is not a good parliamentary programme for children and families.
“The programme is riddled with attacks on working people who have children and families.
“Making it easier to sack people creates further massive insecurity for millions of ordinary working families and does nothing to create jobs or secure economic recovery.
“This parliamentary programme is the vehicle for bringing an end to the right of ordinary working people to a decent occupational pension.
“This programme is a continuation of the Tory ideological reform agenda for which grass roots Liberal Democrats are paying an increasingly high price.”
