Did you mean: trade union?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Schedule 1 (The Education Authority) (21 October 2014)

John O'Dowd: Perhaps one thing we should be looking at is trade union representation on the board.  At least, they have a mandate from their trade unions to represent the views of the boards.  There are around five teachers' trade unions.  You might want to suggest to them that they send a representative from that collective body.  I understand the principle behind the amendment, but,...

Deregulation Bill: Committee (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Baroness Thornton: ...Clause 10 to be withdrawn. Page 16 of the impact assessment states: “There has been minimal analysis”, due to what has happened. The analysis, it continued, was, “based on the data provided by the PHV trade associations. Due to time constraints there has not been a significant amount of analysis”, to justify these clauses being in the Bill. The Government have...

Criminal Justice and Courts Bill — Report (1st Day) (20 October 2014)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: ...would cover so many workers as to render it ineffective. That is why I proposed at the Committee stage of this Bill in July the amendment before your Lordships, drafted with the invaluable help of the union USDAW. I thank all at USDAW for their great help on this issue. The amendment focuses specifically on those workers who are required to enforce, as part of their employment, compliance...

Social Action, Responsibility and Heroism Bill: Clause 3 — Responsibility (20 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Edward Garnier: ...to leave the Chamber, but there we are—what I said on Second Reading, because I do not think anything has been done to the Bill since Second Reading to alter my mind about it. I do not take a trade union view. I do not take a cataclysmic view of the sort expressed by the Opposition spokesman that this is a Bill designed to undermine workers’ rights, or whatever it may be. I...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Civil Service:  Savings (20 October 2014)

Peter Robinson: ...servants in Northern Ireland for a population of 1·8 million people, we certainly can make reductions without having any serious impact on the services that are provided.  I agree wholeheartedly with the trade unions that that has to be a planned reduction, perhaps over a period, to ensure that we do not leave any parts of the public service undermanned and that we are able to...

The Chairman of Ways and Means took the Chair as Deputy Speaker (Standing Order No. 3) — European Union (Referendum) Bill (17 October 2014) See 9 other results from this debate

Mike Gapes: ...country is outward looking and global; it has a stable society and the rule of law. It is also involved in the largest single market in the world, on a continent of 500 million people. Half of our trade is with the European Union. The Bill represents a threat to that and to the jobs and prosperity of our people. That is a flaw in the Bill. I have talked about the proposed date, and I will...

Uk Government: Scotland (16 October 2014)

Alistair Carmichael: ...fail if it includes only the political parties, because unfortunately they always see things through the prism of their own self-interest. For that reason, we have to bring in wider voices—civic society, the business community, the trade unions, the Churches and just interested citizens who have something to say. It is for that reason that, as somebody who passionately believes in...

Russia — Motion to Take Note (16 October 2014) See 3 other results from this debate

Lord Maclennan of Rogart: ...the Ukrainian initiatives and the initiative taken by President Putin in November 2010—he was the Prime Minister at the time—when he wrote an article in the Süddeutsche Zeitung calling for a free trade area running from Lisbon to Vladivostok. Why did we not respond to that in a positive way, which might have reduced the significance of the Ukrainian view?

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Police Recorded Crime Statistics (16 October 2014)

Kelvin Hopkins: I agree with everything the hon. Gentleman has said so far in his excellent speech. Given what he has told us about the Police Federation, do we not need a proper trade union for police officers, which would defend individuals as he suggests, instead of having an organisation that is in effect half controlled by the Home Office, rather than by its members, whom it is supposed to serve?

Business of the House (16 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Tom Blenkinsop: ...but in Redcar and Beam Mill. They are very much concerned about their futures under the potential new ownership. Can we have further clarification from the Government that they will be talking to trade union representatives from all sites before they meet Klesch, because that is of the utmost importance?

Women and Equalities: Tata Steel (16 October 2014)

Tom Blenkinsop: The Minister has already said that he will talk to Gary Klesch and the Klesch group very soon, but will he also extend that courtesy to trade unions prior to meeting the Klesch group on the issue? Secondly, given that Tata has made this announcement about 50% of its European operations, which are primarily based in the UK, will the Minister also talk to Tata about its future developments in...

Jo Swinson: I am today publishing the Government’s response to the consultation on reform of the street trading regimes in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and the pedlary regime across the UK. This will ensure compliance with the EU services directive. A joint consultation with the devolved Administrations was published on 23 November 20121 seeking views on draft regulations to: repeal the...

Public Sector Executive Pay and Governance (15 October 2014)

David Amess: ...our public expenditure need to be addressed. For instance, we contribute a net amount of €9.2 billion to the European Union—when the Prime Minister renegotiates things I know that that will be at the top of his agenda. We subsidise trade unions with the stunning amount of £113 million per annum, and lose 2.6% of total hours on sickness leave in the public sector, as...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: NHS Services (Access) (15 October 2014)

Jeremy Hunt: ...Labour wants to put him back in charge of the NHS, while he refuses to acknowledge the terrible problems caused by Labour’s NHS target culture? The right hon. Gentleman also talked about privatisation. That may hit the spot for his trade union supporters, but it does not stand up to scrutiny. He knows that the use of the private sector for secondary care has grown more slowly under...

Grimsby Seafood Manufacturers (15 October 2014)

Austin Mitchell: ...get regional selective assistance, or other public support, for the investment they need to expand and grow. I emphasise that although my reputation is for being a Eurosceptic—a man whose opinion of the European Union can be summed up in four words, three of which are “the European Union”, and who is a continuous critic of it—I do not raise this issue just as a...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: National Minimum Wage (15 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Richard Fuller: ...strike—at least not since school. Does he agree that one concern is that those on both Front Benches are too timid about raising wages and that they do not have the passion he had when he led his trade union to do more? The issue is not fiddling about with the figure of £8 or £8.50, or whether we hit it naturally, but the courage that those on both Front Benches should have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Referendum Outcome (Government Policy) (15 October 2014)

Alistair Carmichael: ..., we have built consensus in Scotland about constitutional change. This is too important to be left to the political parties. We must have—I am confident that we will—the voice of business, trade unions, churches and wider civic Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 October 2014)

Robert Halfon: ...unemployment by 43%, the number of apprentices has gone up by 82% and there have been tax cuts for thousands of low earners? Does that not show that we are the true workers party now and the modern trade union movement for hard-working people?
