UCATT Reaction to Prime Minister’s Speech on Migration

Commentating on Gordon Brown’s speech on migration today (November 12), Alan Ritchie General Secretary of construction union UCATT, said: “The Prime Minister’s commitment to further develop skills’ strategies is warmly welcomed. This commitment builds on the Government’s efforts to boost the number of apprentices in construction. The challenge remains to persuade reluctant employers to invest in training. Far too many employers fail to train young local workers.”
