Today, LCHR launches its latest briefing on the Trade Union Bill. In this briefing we have explored four key areas where the Trade Union Bill affects human rights:
- Possible violations of Article 11 of the Human Rights Act and ECHR.
- Possible violations of ratified ILO conventions.
- Effects on democratic principles.
- Effects on privacy and freedom of speech.
This short briefing aims to show how the Trade Union Bill should be considered as a broader attack on human rights and a weakening of opposition forces to the government.
