What the TUC will be talking about at its conference

Given that we are spared round the clock broadcasting of every last cough from the TUC these days, praise the Lord, here are some motions:

Trade Union Freedom Bill
Congress re-affirms its support for the Trade Union Freedom Bill, which is to be placed before Parliament for a second reading on 19 October 2007. Congress agrees that the lack of progress made to date on the repealing of the anti-trade union laws introduced by the Tory government is totally unacceptable. Action must be taken without further delay to restore the rights of the worker in the workplace. Congress therefore agrees to step up the campaign for the repeal of all anti- trade union laws and gives full support to a lobby of Parliament in support of the Trade Union Freedom Bill tabled by John McDonnell MP." NUM

Sub-paragraph vii), after “Trade Union Freedom Bill” insert: “, including provisions in line with this year's request to the UK Government by the ILO Committee of Experts to amend legislation to allow workers 'to participate in sympathy strikes, provided the initial strike they are supporting is lawful';” Unite

Secondary action? Yup, that's what they want. Wouldn't that be good for the economy, eh?

Trade union rights for prison officers

Congress reaffirms its policy to insist that prison officers have returned to them full trade union rights, including the right to restrict and withdraw their Labour – these rights being no different from those enjoyed by other public and emergency service representative bodies. POA
Striking prison officers. What a great idea.

There's a whole lot more, and I will be returning to this, I think.

The Government's inextricable links with the trades unions are a grave threat to the economy, particularly as they're promising money to Labour for a snap general election. If that's the quid, what's the pro?
