Share ben­e­fit all round, say union chiefs

Sunday Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - News -

EV­ERY part of Bri­tain must be given bet­ter jobs and liv­ing stan­dards after Brexit, unions de­mand to­day.

The TUC is set­ting out an al­ter­na­tive vi­sion as PM Theresa May re­veals her own in­dus­trial strat­egy.

Gov­ern­ment, busi­ness and unions should co-op­er­ate and there should be more pub­lic in­vest­ment it says. Money should be spent in ar­eas hit by de­cline and on key in­dus­tries, in­fra­struc­ture and skills.

The TUC also wants worker rep­re­sen­ta­tion on com­pany boards.

Leader Frances O’Grady said: “We’d have more worldlead­ing com­pa­nies, we’d cre­ate more high qual­ity jobs, and we would raise liv­ing stan­dards.”
