Union leaders are to meet Keir Starmer for a showdown over the party’s plans to overhaul workers’ rights, with some also expected to express concerns over the defection of Natalie Elphicke.

But some changes since the rights were first proposed have angered unions, including tweaks to allow workers to stay on zero-hours contracts if they prefer – which they say would be a loophole for exploitation.

Though the meeting is intended to review the latest draft of the proposals before they become a campaign document for candidates, several general secretaries are expected to express anger at the defection of Elphicke to Labour – highlighting previous anti-trade union comments.

“Elphicke was a cheerleader for the minimum service levels act and has specifically targeted firefighters in her contributions in parliament,” Wrack wrote.
