T.U.C reject ID Cards
« on: September 11, 2008, 05:20:46 pm »
A rather sensational headline ( mine ) for what was nonetheless a rather sensational motion put before Congress yesterday by BALPA ( the airline pilot's union).
BALPA called the govt. the rescind it's postion on having airside workers register on the NIR as a condition of continuing to work airside.

In short TUC carried against the Govt.

National Identity Scheme
Congress notes that the Government proposes to require workers in aviation to enrol in the National Identity Scheme in 2009. Congress has deep concerns about the implications of the National Identity Scheme in general and the coercion of aviation workers into the scheme in particular. Congress sees absolutely no value in the scheme or in improvements to security that might flow from this exercise and feels that aviation workers are being used as pawns in a politically led process which might lead to individuals being denied the
right to work because they are not registered or chose not to register in the scheme.

Congress pledges to resist this scheme with all means at its disposal, including consideration of legal action to uphold civil liberties.


I predict a period of unrest at airports ahead..............
