Islington council stands with striking workers

Islington borough council, in north London, has passed a resolution supporting striking workers, and opposing anti-union laws.

The resolution notes that “decades of anti-union laws have given us the tightest regulations on strikes in the advanced industrial world”, and indicts the Tories for having “repeatedly undermined the right to strike”. The council has resolved to write to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy to express its opposition to anti-union laws.

Other Labour councils should follow suit!

The full text of the resolution can be read online here, on page 50.
