TUC hits out at “disappointing” plans to tackle corporate misbehaviour

30 Nov 2016 01:28 PM

Commenting on yesterday’s (Tuesday) Green Paper on corporate governance, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“This is not what Theresa May promised. Today’s proposals are disappointing and will not do enough to shake-up corporate Britain.

"We need the voice of elected workers in the boardroom, rather than on advisory panels.

"The Prime Minister vowed to govern for working people. She should let them have a say where it really matters.”

A new poll published today by the TUC, and conducted by Opinium, finds that six in ten (59%) people support the election of worker representatives onto the boards of large companies. Only 10% of those polled opposed the idea.
