Those of us in public life should admit our mistakes. That's why I'm apologising to all BA workers for getting it wrong on Sunday.

BA must restore the pay of their loyal workforce - and the gvt must sit down with employers and workers to address chronic low pay in aviation.

Good.

Now British Airways should do the same - restore the pay of your loyal workforce which is rightfully theirs, and settle this dispute.

And then Tory Ministers should finally ban shameful fire and rehire for good, so no workforce is ever put in this position again.

Unite WIN 🚨: 'Game-changing' pay deal secured for Heathrow cabin crew. 👏

Rape prosecutions are still at near record lows & court backlogs are still at near record highs.

Three years on from recognising their failure, the Tories haven’t done nearly enough.

Labour’s plan would drive up prosecutions & restore victims’ confidence in our justice system.

Grant Shapps wants to give the green light to another P&O scandal. We’ll oppose his reckless gamble with public safety.

Labour’s New Deal for Working People will bring in real protections and banish bullying fire and rehire tactics.

Instead of trying to resolve the rail dispute the Tories are using it as another excuse to attack trade unions my piece for @LabourList https://labourlist.org/2022/06/breaking-strikes-using-agency-workers-is-recklessly-gambling-with-public-safety/

It was an honour to walk @simonlightwood into the Commons Chamber to take his seat today after his by-election success in Wakefield on Thursday.

Proud to be part of this historic @UKLabour victory, I know Simon will be an excellent MP for Wakefield.

Welcoming the brilliant @simonlightwood to Parliament - our newest @UKLabour MP 🌹

Wakefield was crying out for change - and Simon will be an MP they can be proud of.

Labour's @peterkyle says the practice of 'firing and re-hiring' should be out-lawed after BA workers voted for industrial action to seek a reversal to a 10% pay cut imposed during the pandemic.

The Tories now face a credible Labour party: a government-in-waiting with a plan to deliver on the country’s demands.

We will not shy away from that responsibility, duck those challenges or fail to grasp the opportunities our country has.

Congratulations ⁦@simonlightwood⁩ our newest ⁦@UKLabour⁩ MP in #WestYorkshire.

Thank you to every volunteer & campaigner ⁦@LouHaigh⁩ & ⁦@Steph_Peacock⁩

I look forward to working with you to create more jobs, make our buses better & communities safer.

So proud of Wakefield’s new MP, the fantastic @simonlightwood.

This was @UKLabour’s biggest victory here since we were last in government.

This decisive result shows Labour is winning the trust of the British people, and firmly on the path to power.

Just five hours to go! 🌹

Just six weeks ago Ministers feigned outrage at the illegal and unsafe decision to replace P&O workers with agency staff.

Now they’re adopting their playbook.

This senseless plan is a recipe for disaster.

This is a Tory recipe for disaster⚠️

Not just undermining pay, rights and conditions, but risking public safety and ripping up ministers’ own words.

They’ve learned nothing from the P&O scandal, which led to safety failures and grounding of vessels.

This Conservative Government’s Bill of Rights con is an attack on women.

It will make it harder for victims of rape to get justice.

But it comes as no surprise from a Govt that has effectively decriminalised rape.

I can absolutely promise you I was laughing at the most useless Transport Secretary in living memory #PMQs

The Tory government need to act now to avert more rail chaos.

But Grant Shapps hasn’t spent a single second in talks since March. He should stop taking working people for fools & get round the table.

Tell him: stop the grandstanding, resolve the strike.

Wales has a different approach when it comes to industrial relations.

Our social partnership model brings people around the table to discuss rather than argue. It finds solutions rather than creating division.

#RailStrikes

Rail workers kept our country going during the pandemic.

They deserve fair pay and respect.

Grant Shapps should get around the table with them and resolve this dispute.

Today’s rail strike is disrupting the lives of people across the country.

The Tory government didn’t spend a single second in talks to avoid it.

Rail workers kept our country going during the pandemic.

Many lost colleagues and friends.

They are the same people this shameless Prime Minister promised a high-wage economy to, before presiding over the biggest fall in living standards on record.

This is a catastrophic failure of leadership by @GrantShapps.

Today I told him, once again, to get around the table and do his job.

Tomorrow, the rail strike will cause chaos for workers, passengers, and schoolchildren.

Tell the Tories to begin urgent talks to avoid the strike before it’s too late.
