STUC General Council Statement on the General Election

26th April 2017

Her objective is transparently obvious - to take advantage of the current political climate to seek an increase in the Conservative’s Parliamentary majority and to free her Government from scrutiny over the difficult questions that will inevitably arise during the negotiations with the EU. The stage has been set for a single issue election, the narrow focus of which the Prime Minister believes will deliver her a comfortable victory.
