TUC suggests employers set to face more tribunals in north east
An increasing number of employment tribunals could be imminent in one area of the country, it has been suggested.
The Trades Union Congress (TUC) - which represents 6.2 million workers across all sectors in the UK - has said that the north east of England is "once again at the brunt of recessionary forces", which is likely to result in more redundancies in the region.
Subsequently, organisations in the locality could face more tribunals from disgruntled staff, as the TUC stated that the "savage spending cuts" announced by the Conservative-Liberal Democrat alliance will start taking effect properly in April.
Kevin Rowan, regional secretary of the body, commented that the government is showing a "growing disregard for the people at the sharp-end who are suffering the worst" as impending job losses in the area will have a huge impact on its local economy.
"Ministers should use the budget to halt savage spending cuts and commit to a growth strategy," he added.
