Liz votes to end fire and rehire

Today I voted to stop fire and rehire. Issuing hardworking people with redundancy notices, then offering them new contracts on worse conditions, is totally wrong. Yet, since the first lockdown in March, almost 3 million workers have experienced this completely unfair practice. The Government could have voted to put a stop to this today. They chose not to. In Government, Labour would outlaw it.
