Commenting on today’s (Tuesday) announcement to approve continuation of HS2, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“On a project this size, it’s right that the government secures value for taxpayers’ money, but we can’t have any more political delays. No more excuses – the government must get the project moving.
“HS2 is not only a vital upgrade to our transport network, it’s a chance to create thousands of high-quality jobs. But to fully deliver for workers, contractors must work closely with unions to create great jobs and ensure high safety standards.”
