The Working Day

by New Worker correspondent

LAST WEEK the TUC released a report on The Future of Flexible Work, something which it thinks is a good thing. Flexible working hours (FWH) means that people do not need to clock in at 9:00 and of at 17:00 with an hour for lunch. It can allow people to come in at 8:00 or 10:00 and leave at 16:00 or 18:00. Thy can have a half hour for lunch or two hours and work late. Doing many long working days can be rewarded with extra holiday time.

Stronger together?

LABOUR is going to be “Stronger Together” at the next election or so Keir Starmer’s team told us last week with the launch a new campaign that they hope will channel the solidarity shown by the British public during the pandemic. This particular slogan, like most of the Starmer team’s ideas, comes from America. It was Hillary Clinton’s campaign slogan in the 2016 presidential elections. She lost to Donald Trump so it doesn’t augur well for Starmer in the future.

And that future looks grim for Sir Keir following Labour’s dismal showing at the Chesham & Amersham by-election and the almost certain disaster that awaits them when Batley & Spen goes to the polls next week.
