Hull's Labour council in aggressive bid to remove all union convenors
Mike Whale, Chair, Hull City Council trade unions
Hull City Council, run by Labour, is pre-empting the Tories' trade union bill by issuing a redundancy notice known as a '188 notice' which threatens the council's five full time union convenors. The proposal to halve the convenors' time is a determined attempt to behead the workforce as the council prepares to implement the Tories' brutal cuts.
