This morning, Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell told the Labour Party Conference that a Labour government would look to implement the IER's Manifesto for Labour Law.

He said: "But until working people have proper protections at work, the labour market will always work against them. To achieve fair wages, the next Labour government will look to implement the recommendations of the Institute of Employment Rights.

"We’ll reintroduce sectoral collective bargaining across the economy, ending the race to the bottom on wages. And let me give you this commitment: in the first hundred days of our Labour government, we’ll repeal the Trade Union Act."
