Rebecca Long Bailey comments on BEIS facing the first ever indefinite strike at a government department

Rebecca Long Bailey MP, Shadow Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Secretary, commenting on BEIS facing the first ever indefinite strike at a government department, in a living wage dispute, said:

“This is an unprecedented move and I stand in solidarity with workers in the BEIS department whose fight for a real living wage and secure working terms and conditions should be commended.

“It is an utter disgrace that the department responsible for enforcing workers’ rights is failing their staff like this.”
