National Collective Bargaining.

The key focus of the coalitioin government is to break up the remaining public services. Essential in this task is their attack on public sector unions. This attack is like a scorched earth bombing campaign it seeks to hit public sector workers on every front all at once. There is a jobs massacre, a consistent assault on the value of pensions, a pay freeze, erosion of trade union time off agreements, victimisation of key activists and now an emerging threat particularly to local government national collective bargaining. Employers will seek single table bargaining based around one of the worst national agreements there is – the local government Green Book single status agreement. Without the right to free collective bargaining unions will lose their purpose and membership. The long term impact of the current threats to collective bargaining unless they are stopped will be extremely serious.
