TUC boss: Cameron will seize your EU employment rights to weaken them
Rajeev SyalDavid Cameron will use EU reforms to repatriate and weaken workers' rights, Frances O'Grady, the new leader of the Trades Union Congress will warn on Monday.
Speaking at a conference in Madrid she will say that, if the prime minister gets his way, employees across Europe may no longer receive health and safety protection, equal treatment as part-time workers and women, or paid holidays.
The TUC general secretary's words come after Nick Clegg warned his coalition partner that a promise to hold a referendum on EU membership risked damaging the fragile economy.
