PCS: Undermining employment rights will do nothing for economy

PCS press release

Commenting on the government's announcement that the consultation period for redundancies will be halved, Public and Commercial Services union general secretary Mark Serwotka said:

"While handing tax breaks to millionaires this Tory-led government has announced policy after policy designed to make it easier and quicker to throw ordinary people out of work, and then ministers seek to blame them for being unemployed.

"Given almost everyone can now see that austerity isn't working, instead of these policies of despair and division we need investment in our economy and our public services to create jobs and opportunities to help our communities.

"The truth behind the government's ideological rhetoric is that undermining people's basic employment rights will not create a single job and will do nothing to improve our economy."
