Breaking News: Labour Party Announcement on Employment Tribuals

Speaking live at TUC Congress, Shadow Business Secretary Chuka Umunna is announcing that the next Labour Government will "scrap" the Government’s employment tribunal system and replace it with "a fairer system to ensure that affordability is not a barrier to employees seeking redress in the workplace."

Full details here (and if you click now, Chuka Umanna is currently speaking live on the TUC webstream - NOTE this link only works for some viewers, other browsers will say that access is not authorised).  The announcement doesn't make it clear whether fees will be abolished entirely if the Labour party forms the next government, or whether some form of fees will remain.
