TUC Disabled Workers statement on Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill and Elections Bill

TUC Disabled Workers’ Committee strongly opposes the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill.

The Bill includes new duties which oblige public services to share service users’ information with the police, which is an unacceptable shift away from a public health approach to an authoritarian approach, which will erode trust between public services and disabled people.

Flexible working and reasonable adjustments

The TUC has been advocating what it calls ‘flexible working as a reasonable adjustment’ for disabled workers. What it means by this is the right of disabled workers to work from home or another location, with hours that suit our access needs.

The march assembles at 11am at Victoria Embankment and will arrive in Hyde Park from 1.00pm for a rally which will be addressed by Jeremy Corbyn.

The union’s members will be marching against austerity, cuts, privatisation and the race to the bottom which in the rail, maritime, offshore and bus sectors have wreaked havoc and undermined safety across these industries.
