Good luck Rita!

Whilst our attention is rightly taken up with the pernicious Trade Union Bill going through the House of Commons, it is worth remembering the exit payment cap which the Tories are seeking to impose upon public sector workers as part of the Enterprise Bill, currently before the House of Lords.

As the link above, former leading UNISON activist, Rita (now Baroness) Donaghy is leading opposition to the relevant clause of the Bill (Clause 26).

The exit payment cap will hit not only senior managers but also - for example - career local government officers who have reached Principal Officer grades and are made redundant in their mid 50s‎. 

Since the Government introduced this measure into the Lords, their Lordships could vote it down without any constitutional question whatsoever...

Good luck Rita!
