Labour’s new deal for working people will be transformational and end 14 years of Tory attacks says Usdaw

Date: 25 May 2024 Retail trade union Usdaw has given full backing to Labour and their new deal for working people, which will end fourteen years of Tory attacks on workers and their trade unions. The union is backing Labour in the general election to deliver the change workers desperately need.
Labour leader Keir Starmer has today told the BBC: “We have come to an agreement with the trade unions on the new deal for working people. This is the most significant set of protections for a generation. It’s also something which I think employers and good businesses would say, ‘looking at the detail of it, this is what we’re doing in good businesses’.”
Paddy Lillis – Usdaw general secretary says: “Our members have suffered fourteen years of Tory austerity, a Tory cost of living crisis, along with the Tories’ persistent attacks on workers’ rights and trade unions. This general election gives us the opportunity to end that and a secure a Labour government that will deliver the change our members so desperately need.
“Labour’s new deal for working people will be transformational and challenge employers who engage workers on insecure and low-paid contracts. It is also good for business, because it will stop rogue employers from undercutting competitors by exploiting workers. Labour’s new deal is the biggest offer any party has ever made to workers, it deserves our wholehearted support.”
