Labour unveils 20 point plan on worker’s rights … but it only has 18 promises

1 May

Labour unveiled a 20 point plan to protect and enhance worker’s rights over the weekend but there was a problem … the plan only had 18 promises.

A tweet posted online encouraged voters to click a link to find out more about the plan, which includes pledges to boost paternity and maternity pay and introduce collective bargaining.

But the graphic showed just 18 of the 20 promises sent to journalists via email two days earlier. 

So had the party ditched a couple of key pledges hours after they were announced? Or had someone forgotten to copy and paste the full list?

It looks like it was a simple case of forgetting to add everything from the original list because after The Telegraph asked why they were missing the two extra points were hastily added.

The missing points were:

Use public spending power to drive up standards , including only awarding public contracts to companies which recognise trade unions

Introduce  a civil enforcement system to ensure compliance with gender pay auditing– so that all workers have fair access to employment and promotion opportunities and are treated fairly at work
