Unite reaction to Hutton TUC speech on vulnerable workers

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 12, 2007) -

Derek Simpson, Joint General Secretary of Unite, said:

"This was Hutton dressed as sham.

"The idea that the health of UK economy depends on the exploitation of vulnerable agency workers is a lie.

"Temporary and agency work is a licence to be exploited, not one of choice. If the government is serious about protecting the more than one million people who are being subjected to terrible workplaces abuses we must have legislation now."
