Draft Regulations On Blacklisting Of Trade Unionists

EDM number 487 in 2009-10, proposed by Michael Clapham on 15/12/2009.
Categorised under the topic of Industrial relations.

That this House is disappointed by the Government's response to the public consultation on the blacklisting of trade unionists because it is insufficiently robust; in this context calls for amendments to the draft regulations to recognise that compiling a blacklist of workers is an appalling practice and should be a criminal offence, as should the reprehensible use of such a list by an employer for the purpose of blacklisting, as was proposed in the House on 30 March 1999 by the then Secretary of State for Trade and Industry; further calls for them to include the right to a basic award of compensation for the fact of being blacklisted; and urges the Government to make the necessary amendments to the proposed draft regulations.

This motion has been signed by a total of 70 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
