Co-Steel Sheerness;amdt. Line 1:

EDM number 97A1 in 1996-97, proposed by Roger Moate on 21/11/1996.

leave out from 'House' to end and add 'notes the commitment of the Labour Party to increasing compulsion on employers to recognise trade unions for bargaining purposes and to undermine the great advance in British industrial relations achieved by Conservative legislation; deplores the fact that, in the furtherance of their campaign to this end, they choose to attack and denigrate successful companies such as Co-Steel Sheerness on the Isle of Sheppey, Kent, a company which is a leader in world steel technology and which plays an important part in the economy of Kent and of the United Kingdom, is one of the nation's top export earners, employs over 1,000 people, provides the best pay and benefit package in the United Kingdom steel industry, has an outstanding record of industrial relations, plays a leading role in training and vocational education, was amongst the first group of companies to get the Investor in People Award and is greatly involved with the local community where it gains widespread support from people of all political persuasions; and further notes that the trade union campaign for recognition appears to have significant local support and that a union-organised march in Sheerness was attended by not a single one of the company's employees.'.

This is a ammendment to 97.

This motion has been signed by a total of 57 MPs.
