"Proposed review must not erode employee rights" - Flanagan
Speaking in advance of an Assembly motion in support of a review of Employment regulations Sinn Féin Enterprise Spokesperson Phil Flanagan said:
"While Sinn Féin would agree that employment regulations need reviewing we will oppose any proposals that erode the rights and protections of employees.
"Workers have fought long and hard to ensure a degree of protection against exploitation by unscrupulous employers and government should not think that it will be allowed to use the present economic climate to push through anti-worker legislation.
"Any review of employment regulation must be aimed at ensuring that employee rights are protected against exploitation.”
