TUC LOBBY OF PARLIAMENT - Monday, November 2nd. Rally in Central Hall, Westminster, London Start: 1:00pm, Lobby your M.P. from 2.30pm .

(You may need to make an appointment with your MP)

See below for questions to ask your MP on the day. If you cannot attend in person please email your Conservative M.P. here with the following questions which you can copy and paste into the form that will appear when you click through on the site.

The site will identify the party of your Member of Parliament:

  1. With recorded strikes at a historic low, what is the real purpose of the Trade Union Bill?
  2. How will allowing for the recruitment of agency labour during an industrial dispute improve an already tense situation?
  3. It is unprecedented that a governing party would use its parliamentary majority to legislate to cut off funding for the opposition party, is this not anti-democratic?
  4. Given the police do not wish to be given any new powers, why is the Government pressing ahead with the proposals for identifiable “picket supervisors” who must show a “letter of authority” to almost anybody who asks? This seem draconian and could lead to a new round of “blacklisting”.
  5. Why is the Government refusing to accept secret, supervised workplace ballots and electronic balloting for union members taking part in industrial action ballots?
