Trade Unions At Gchq

EDM number 1451 in 1989-90, proposed by John McAllion on 24/10/1990.

That this House notes the decision of the Staff Federation at GCHQ to develop outside links with another trade union affiliated to the Labour Party; recognises that this represents an important first step towards the eventual revoking of the ban on unions at GCHQ; welcomes the Government's tolerance of re-emerging trade unionism at GCHQ as a sign of a major policy u-turn; and calls upon the Government to confirm that trade union certification of the Staff Federation will mark the end of the ban on free and independent trade unionism at GCHQ.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
