I have a blog in The New Statesman, entitled Workers on boards was an enlightened idea – Theresa May should have stuck to it.

It sets out the TUC’s comments on the government’s corporate governance proposals, after our initial response described the proposals as feeble.

And in the Guardian, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady and the Adam Smith Institute’s Sam Bowman set out alternative views on whether companies be forced to put workers on boards. No prizes for guessing for who was arguing which viewpoint…

Despite the government’s disappointing u-turn on workers on boards, the genie is out of the bottle and the TUC has no intention of letting it back in!
