Unite's reaction to the Queen's speech
Wednesday, 18 November 2009
Unite joint general secretary, Derek Simpson said:
"Labour has set out a clear vision for a fairer society while supporting the economic recovery. Closing the gap between rich and poor and addressing gender inequality are proof that Labour stands for fairness.
"The Tories bleak vision of the future means savage cuts to public services and making people work for longer and for less."
Unite joint general secretary, Tony Woodley said:
"We are urging the Government to ensure that the much-needed measures to end the abuse of agency workers should be put into effect before the next general election."
