TUC: Oxfam inequality report adds to case for workers on company boards

TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady commented on the publication today (Tuesday) of a report from Oxfam on inequality, which calls on Theresa May to deliver on her proposal to put worker representatives on company boards, 

“Oxfam’s report shows why we need action from government to get a better deal for working people.

“There’s widespread support now for elected worker seats on company boards, including from the Prime Minister. It would make sure boardrooms focus on long-term success, which would encourage companies to invest in their staff and help working people to get fairer pay deals. It’s the right thing to do, so let’s make it happen.”
