McStrike shows how workers are exploited in the UK | Owen Jones talks...
McDonald's workers in Cambridge and Crawford went on strike this week, demanding a genuine living wage, trade union representation and job security. Subscribe: because you're worth it. ► http://bit.ly/subsowenjones Their predicament is not unusual in the UK today: global corporate giants, turning a huge profit, are allowed to get away with zero hours contracts, bogus self-employment and other practices that, in my view, are exploitative. We have to show solidarity with staff at McDonald's and others in similar situations because a win for them is a win for all of us.

UK: Tens of thousands join Corbyn at trade union march in London
Subscribe to our channel! rupt.ly/subscribe Tens of thousands marched through London’s streets on Saturday to join a protest and rally organised by the Trade Union Congress (TUC). The events were organised with a set of demands for the government - to increase funding for the UK’s National Health Service and Public Services, end zero hours contracts, increase the minimum wage to £10 per hour (EUR 11.33), repeal the trade unions act and crack down on tax avoidance. There were no reported disturbances as trade union branches from across the country came together to protest against the governing Conservative Party’s economic and social policies. Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party, addressed the crowds as they rallied in Hyde Park following the march. He pledged to meet the protesters demands and vowed to bring about a new, more just era in British politics. He also said that there would be no ’sweetheart trade deal’ with US President Donald Trump were Labour in office.

BREXIT: Exiting the European Union Committee (15th May 2019)
The Committee on Exiting the European Union returned with an evidence session on Wednesday 15 May, as part of its over-arching inquiry examining the progress of the UK’s negotiations on EU withdrawal. EU guidelines on 'level playing field' EU Member States follow a set of rules and standards, which are enforced by the European Commission and CJEU and designed to ensure a similar operating environment for businesses across the Single Market. EU guidelines for the future relationship with the UK state that an ‘ambitious and wide-ranging trade agreement’ will be dependent on ‘sufficient guarantees for a level playing field’ for EU and UK business. The Withdrawal Agreement contains a number of provisions to maintain a “level playing field” in respect of state aid policy, competition law, environmental standards, social and employment protections and consumer rights. Purpose of the session In this session, the Committee will explore ways in which “level playing field” provisions would apply in the UK after exit if the Withdrawal Agreement is approved and how they might affect UK-EU relations and the UK’s trading relations with other countries in the event of a no deal exit. European Union chief negotiator Michel Barnier has referred to the need to ensure “any trade agreement with the United Kingdom guarantees both fair competition and the protections we consider necessary.” Witnesses: ** George Peretz QC, Monckton Chambers, ** Ms Sara Ogilvie, Trades Union Congress, ** Dr Emily Lydgate, University of Sussex and fellow of the UK Trade Policy Observatory ** Mr Pieter Cleppe, Open Europe

What Brexit will do to UK trade
Three University of Groningen economists analysed the UK's options for trade after it leaves the European Union. Their result? There is no option that is better for UK trade than the current situation. The best result from Brexit would be the one that most closely mimics the UK's current arrangement.

NATO officials have warned the British that voting for Brexit could have harmful international security ramifications.

RMT launches challenge to UK anti-trade union laws in European Court of Human Rights (May 24, 2010)
TRANSPORT union RMT has announced that it is launching an unprecedented challenge to the UKs anti-trade union laws in the European Court of Human Rights. Papers on behalf of RMT will be lodged with the European Court by the union and its solicitors. RMT will argue that its ability to organise industrial action to protect its members is restricted by UK law in a breach of Article 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. The union will be represented in the Court by RMTs standing counsel John Hendy QC and Marcus Pilgerstorfer, instructed by Thompsons Solicitors. The cases that RMT are challenging at European level are the EDF Energy court challenge and Hydrex dispute. These involved two groups of RMT members who balloted for industrial action last autumn. The RMT is putting forward arguments about two restrictions imposed by UK legislation in respect of the EDF and Hydrex cases which it says are incompatible with Article 11 of the Euopean Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. They are as follows: 1. the statutory requirement for the union to serve on an employer a notice which must fulfill onerous conditions such as providing the identification of the specific job descriptions of the intended voters; and 2. the absolute prohibition on unions organising solidarity industrial action (even where the secondary employer is closely associated with the primary employer in dispute). Video filmed and edited by Alan Miles. Interviews by Geoff Martin.

Brexit BUMMER: UK has rolled over just £16bn out of £117bn trade deals
Of the 69 countries with which the European Union has trade agreements the United Kingdom has so far established new deals with... only seven countries. The government’s push to roll over EU trade deals from which the United Kingdom currently benefits has yielded agreements covering only £16bn of the near-£117bn of British trade with the countries involved. Despite frenetic efforts by ministers to ensure the continuity of international trade after the UK leaves the EU on 29 March, the international trade secretary, Liam Fox, has so far only managed to secure deals with seven of the 69 countries that the UK currently trades with under preferential EU free trade agreements, which will end after Brexit. Fox’s department has yet to sign agreements with several major UK trading partners – including Canada, Japan, South Korea and Turkey – while sources have said that sufficient progress is unlikely to be made before the Brexit deadline in less than 50 days’ time. Although the government announced a trade continuity agreement with Switzerland earlier this week, covering goods worth more than £14bn, most of the goods deals it has secured so far are worth far less to the United Kingdom. #Brexit #LiamFox #UnitedKingdom #EuropeanUnion

In the UK, female trade unionists stand against the system of prostitution
In September 2017, several female representatives gave powerful statements on their trade unions’ analysis of the system of prostitution in the UK during the TUC Congress. Their message: prostitution cannot be considered decent work. These statements were backed by a recent decision of the UK Trade Union Congress’ Women’s Conference to support the abolitionist Nordic Model on prostitution. The delegates highlighted the importance of respecting and listening to women’s representation and structures within the trade union movement. British trade unions overwhelmingly rejected a motion proposed by ASLEF, a male-dominated train drivers’ union, to fully decriminalize the sex industry, including pimps, brothel owners and sex buyers, during the Trade Union Congress.  CAP Intl is coordinating an international campaign with abolitionist trade unions.

Can the UK afford to leave the EU Customs union?
The latest battle in the Brexit negotiations is over the UK’s membership of the Customs union – an agreement which limits import taxes and other financial trade barriers. If the UK leaves there will be a complex web of customs procedures to unravel, maybe even a hard Irish border. But if they don't, what happens next? Where will the UK be left when the trade talks are over? Joining us at the Roundtable is Ian Dunt; the Editor of Politics.co.uk and author of 'Brexit: What The Hell Happens Now?'; Martin Bentham, the Home Affairs editor at the London Evening Standard; and Andre Walker, a journalist covering the work of the British Parliament and Prime Minister.

BREXIT: UK will miss out on EU-New Zealand trade deal (15th February 2019)
The European Union and New Zealand want to wrap up a free-trade agreement this year. The Zealand-European Union Free Trade Agreement was top of mind in discussions today between New Zealand's Agriculture Minister Damien O’Connor and the EU’s Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Phil Hogan. “New Zealand and the EU are close and natural partners and we both support and defend the rules-based trading system, and continue to work together on practical ways to confront shared challenges such as climate change,” Damien O’Connor said. “There is strong bilateral trade worth nearly $22 billion a year, but there remains plenty of room to see this trade grow in both directions. The Commissioner’s visit provided a key opportunity to reinforce the importance of the New Zealand and EU relationship, and our mutual support towards ensuring the success of current negotiations towards the FTA.” The EU is currently New Zealand’s third largest trading partner. Mr Hogan also met with Minister for Trade and Export Growth and Minister for the Environment David Parker today. With scoping work on a trade deal dating back to 2017, Hogan says both sides are well aware of their relative sensitivities and how they might be overcome. “It’s not as if we’re starting from a blank sheet - we know each other in terms of a product lens and what we want.” He points to those tough but fruitful talks with Japan, a country with a broader range of trade concerns than New Zealand, as an example of what is possible. The UK has also signed deals with the United States, Australia and New Zealand, but these are "mutual recognition agreements" and not free trade agreements. The Australia and New Zealand deal replicates all aspects of the current EU agreements when it comes to recognising product standards, such as the labelling and certifying of wine. The US agreement will, according to the Department for International Trade, particularly benefit the pharmaceutical sector which accounts for around £7.7bn of UK exports to the US - about 18% of the total. #Brexit #PhilHogan #NewZealand #EuropeanUnion #Trade #TradeDeal #FTA #FreeTradeAgreement
