At this general election, the TUC is urging working people to use our votes to fix Britain and make politicians put working class families first.
We’ll be assessing the party manifestos to see how they deliver on our tests for working families. First up is the Lib Dems.
We’re in the longest pay squeeze for two centuries. But the Lib Dems measures to address this are half-hearted.
3.7 million workers are now in insecure work. But though the Liberal Democrat manifesto recognises the problem, they won’t take the action needed to stamp out employment practices that we should have said goodbye to in the Victorian age.
Meeting the rising demand on our public services is one of the key challenges for the next government. This is all the more difficult given the devastating impact of ten years of austerity under coalition and Conservative governments on our NHS, schools and other vital services.
Working families need real change at this election.
While there’s some measures to welcome in this manifesto, it won’t deliver the decent jobs, rights and public services we know families deserve.
