Why so many workers are striking – Frances O’Grady

Frances O’Grady stepped down as the General Secretary of British Trades Union Congress at the end of 2022. She was the first woman to hold the post in TUC’s 154-year history.

She is now a Labour peer in the House of Lords where she is committed to abolishing the unelected chamber.

She joins Krishnan to talk about the history of the trade union movement, why she thinks workers are going on strike and what the government should be doing to support them and support for single parents.
