Labour pledges to strengthen workers' rights if elected
Labour's deputy leader, Angela Rayner, has promised to introduce new legislation within 100 days of a Labour government to improve workers' rights, including banning zero-hours contracts and repealing anti-strike laws. Rayner's speech at the Trades Union Congress (TUC) received a standing ovation, with the majority of Labour-affiliated unions supporting the party's commitments. However, Unite, a major Labour donor, expressed concerns that some commitments were being watered down. The pledge to strengthen workers' rights is seen as a key priority for Labour in their bid to win the next general election.
