There's no need for unions in the UK, workers have an adequate sufficiency of rights and protection.



Indeed - Unions were useful 100 years ago when employers would treat them badly, but we now have a mass of legal protection by both the UK and EU laws.

All Unions seems to do these days is cause problems over pay where they demand unreasonable sums and unbelievable amounts of paid holiday for their members. Take the Tube drivers - they start on £49k, they get 43 days holiday a year and they still want more!

They will eventually do themselves out of a job once driver less trains come in and their behaviour is just turning public attitudes against them and making the change to automatic systems happen faster. We have seen it happen to a wide variety of industries ion the UK since the War, all of which have collapsed at least in part due to militant Union behaviour.

Says who? It is members of unions who declare whether they have sufficient protection and adequate wages, not self-satisfied, paid-up members of the Tory Party who have no need for the protection provided by membership of a union.

What you are advocating is a form of fascism wherein workers cannot withdraw their labour if their working conditions are inadequate. It is what belongs to the 19th century .....

Don't think I'm paying you enough for the work you're doing? Find someone who pays better.

If no one else pays better then sorry, but that's all your skills and labour are worth on the market. If you want more money, make yourself worth more.

These threads tend to be divided between those who "get" that - usually they tend to be the people who have gone out and made themselves worth more - and those who don't "get" it - usually the people who can't be arsed to pull their own socks up so they demand that the government does something instead.

Nothing to do with fascism, sunshine. Everything to do with work ethic and taking responsibility for yourself.
