CBI (NI) call for further attacks

The bosses union, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has published a new report titled ‘Moving up a gear – Assessing the pace of public service reform in Northern Ireland’.

Sadly, as demonstrated by the cross-party support the CBI gained for its demand for a cut in corporation tax, this failed pro-big business/anti-working class agenda rules at Stormont and must now be challenged.
