Stop employment wrongs
Your rights at work are under attack.
The coalition government has made it easier for employers to sack staff, and harder for workers to take claims for bad treatment to an employment tribunal. Maternity rights are at risk and health and safety protection under fire.
But this is not a head-on big-bang assault. Instead rights are being sliced away bit by bit. It's a stealth attack – and many haven't noticed.
That is why the ATL is joining the TUC in its campaign against the changes. We need to make people aware of what they might lose. And make sure ministers know that we have rumbled them.
How does the government want to change your rights?
Abolition of unfair dismissal protection, whether for micro businesses only or for all employees
moving Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP) from employer administered to state-administered
reduction in period of statutory maternity leave
substantial changes to employment tribunals, including introduction of fees
substantial changes to the law on industrial action, including introducing a minimum voting
reduction in consultation periods for collective redundancy
abolition of the statutory union recognition scheme.
