ASTI members take a stand

Sir, – I am perturbed that a Minister of the Labour Party, a party with its roots in the trade union movement, threatens ASTI members with redundancy for rejection of the Haddington Road proposals. Last time I checked I thought that in this democratic country one could not be dismissed for being a member of a trade union; and pay and conditions and refusal to recognise a trade union constituted grounds for a legitimate trade dispute. Parallels could be drawn with the Orwell novel Animal Farm. – Yours, etc,
