Filling the factories scheme wins state funding for the next decade

Filling the factories scheme wins state funding for the next decade.

It is also unclear why some of the biggest suppliers in Britain – from steel to car parts – are not involved in the scheme despite being among the biggest beneficiaries.

Unite’s general secretary Len McCluskey said: “This proposal has just been confirmed and it makes no sense. It is the most backward, unnecessary and wrong.

“These companies have provided our factories in this country for nearly 100 years and we will continue to demand better pay and working conditions, with fair pay and protection for our members.”

A Department for Business and Skills spokesman said: “The company’s decision in 2010 to suspend payments to RMT and Unite for two years was entirely voluntary.

“The government’s procurement policy aims to help make firms s바카라tronger and, under our plan, to make them more competitive, so we welcome this announcement from RMT. We welcome all industry groups in supporting their efforts and we hope others will.”

The union’s chief Mike Kelly said the move would be “devastating for jobs and livelihoods, and an insult to the British people”.

Meanwhile his colleagues will continue to meet their leaders. If RMT are still not convinced about the proposal, they should now be asking themselves why they let the Department for Business and Skills give them this power over their own members.

But RMT general secretary Bob Crowther will be watching carefully, waiting to see whether the UK government will decide to proceed with a different approach to RMT’s demands on behalf of its members.

The company ha에스엠 카지노s long argued that the scheme was a bad deal for union members and that the latest move does not go far enough.

RMT have accused the government of abandoning them in favour of other employers at the cost of their own members, who have lost up to 14,000 jobs.
