Thompsons Solicitors has announced a new partnership with the Trades Union Congress (TUC) by sponsoring its Risks e-newsletter.

Risks is the TUC’s weekly online bulletin for safety representatives and other members of the union movement who are interested in workplace health and safety developments.

The newsletter plays a pivotal role in highlighting concerns with modern labour standards, which continue to leave many workers vulnerable to injury or exploitation.

Tom Jones, head of policy at Thompsons Solicitors, said: “We are delighted to announce our partnership with the TUC on its Risks newsletter.

“Thompsons has always stood up for the rights and health and safety of workers, and always will.

"Our partnership with the Risks newsletter is another example of our commitment to the important role that union members play in health and safety in the workplace."

Head of policy

“Our firm was founded nearly 100 years ago with the vision of providing justice for working people. That vision lives on today, in our refusal to act for insurers or employers and only ever for the injured and mistreated, in the day in day out work of our solicitors helping trade union members to secure the compensation and legal protections they need, and through our campaigning.

“In the past few years alone we have campaigned to highlight that private hospitals are not held to the same standards as the NHS, for injured workers to be able to continue to receive free legal help and encouraged workers to know how to enforce their rights of protection from hazardous substances in the workplace.

“Our partnership with the Risks newsletter is another example of our commitment to the important role that union members play in health and safety in the workplace.”

The Risks newsletter can be subscribed to via the TUC website.
