A New Deal for Working People

“New Deal for Working People,”

In today’s fast-paced business world, ensuring the rights and welfare of employees is not just a moral obligation but a strategic imperative. At B2B Connections, we understand that the backbone of any thriving economy is its workforce. With that in mind, we bring you insights into the Labour Party’s commitment to revitalising workers’ rights in the UK. Their vision is encapsulated in their proposed “New Deal for Working People,” which aims to secure fair and equitable treatment for all workers. Below is the Labour Party’s comprehensive plan, outlining their dedication to creating a better work environment for everyone.

A New Deal for Working People

The Labour Party has a long and proud history of being the Party not just of working people but for working people.

  • From day one, a Labour government will strengthen workers’ rights and make Britain work for working for people.
  • Everyone deserves a job they can live on and build a life on, no matter who they are or what job they do. Our ambition to ensure a fair day’s pay for a day’s work is core to our values.
  • We all deserve high-quality, secure, rewarding jobs.

That is why Labour in power will secure a New Deal for Working People. It’s how we’ll make work pay.

Boosting people’s income is not just the right thing for them – it is the right thing for our economy. Better pay would end the self-defeating low wage, low investment, and low productivity cycle that the country has been trapped in for the last decade. It will also help to tackle the cost of living crisis by ensuring everyone is paid enough to live on.

  • Labour will strengthen the protections afforded to all workers by banning zero-hours contracts, ending fire and rehire, and scrapping qualifying periods for basic rights, which leave working people waiting up to two years for basic protections.

This will include unfair dismissal, sick pay, and parental leave, giving working people under Labour rights at work from day one.

Labour’s mission is to create more and better jobs that are closer to home, so people have the real choices that they have been denied for far too long.

Our country remains riven by inequalities which Labour is focused on fixing – to ensure the working people who create our nation’s wealth get their fair share of it. Rather than stacking the odds against working parents, Labour will deliver stronger family-friendly rights.

Restrictions on union activity are holding back living standards and the economy. We will update trade union legislation so it is fit for a modern economy and empower working people to collectively secure fair pay, terms and conditions.

The Conservatives have failed our country, but Labour’s approach offers people real help right now and a vision for the future of work where working people enjoy dignity, gain security, receive respect, and are supported to prosper.

We are ambitious for our country’s future.

Together we’ll build a Britain that works for working people.

The Labour Party’s vision for a New Deal for Working People underscores the critical importance of fostering a fair and just workplace environment. Getting it right can lead to a prosperous economy where workers feel valued and secure, while failing to do so can perpetuate cycles of low wages and productivity, ultimately harming both individuals and the economy at large.

At B2B Connections, we urge businesses to stay informed and proactive in supporting such initiatives. Together, let’s build a future where every worker can thrive. Contact us today to learn how your organisation can contribute to this important movement.
