On 25 Feb 2020, an Early Day Motion called for the end of harassment to trade unionists at London City Airport. London City Airport is currently listed on the GLA website as an accredited Good Work Standard employer. Will you review this accreditation in light of the Early Day Motion?

I am aware of the Early Day Motion and my team are in contact with the Airport and the unions.

Our workplaces are safer, more productive and better places to be because of our trade unions and my Good Work Standard encourages employers to recognise unions for collective bargaining purposes wherever workers seek to organise.

Any accredited employer who acts in a way that is contrary to this principle is not meeting the terms of the Standard and I will seek to put that right - either by seeking reassurance that practices have been addressed and improved or by removing their accreditation.
