Sir Keir Starmer would ‘drag Britain back to the 1970s’ if he became prime minister by giving trade unions far more power, his critics fear.
A future Labour government would repeal a law that makes it harder for unions to stage strikes.
It would also repeal the legislation that requires teachers, rail workers and the NHS to provide a minimum level of service during industrial action.
