Labour leader and Doncaster North MP Ed Miliband pledged today to work with unions to help the party rebuild the economy in a fairer way if it wins power again.

And he told Unite's national conference that Labour was launching a campaign to highlight cases where workers were being exploited by bad bosses, including not being paid the minimum wage.

Delegates at the Brighton conference attacked Labour earlier this week for losing touch with its core supporters.

Mr Miliband was politely received, and won applause when he said the Government should be making it easier to hire workers, not fire them.
