New chief Frances O'Grady has outlined the TUC's three top priorities for the year ahead, reports the Mirror;
- Urge the government to abandon the austerity measures and cuts and put investment in jobs and growth first.
- Create a long-term vision for the economy with a new industrial policy and forge a laser-like focus on the need to create decent jobs and apprenticeships.
- Build a fair society – with the poorest paid the Living Wage, more done to stop tax avoidance and evasion, and workers’ given a say on bosses’ pay.
