David Cameron to maintain union funding if he is victorious

Despite the fact that David Cameron is in many ways seen as the devil in disguise by the trade union movement, it has been revealed that a number of trade union funding programs would be maintained under a Conservative government. While in public David Cameron has been very critical of the union movement, in reality he has set about trying to mend bridges which were broken during the Margaret Thatcher years.

However, while there is no doubt that the Conservative party and the trade union movement will never see eye to eye, the millions of pounds of state funding does actually find its way down to members for retraining and other vital services. This comes at a time when David Cameron has reiterated time and time again that the UK public sector budget would be cut under a Conservative government which would ultimately impact upon the unions and their party members.

Even though there is talk that some trade unions are looking to cause havoc if the Conservative party is victorious at the polls, the truth is that both parties will need to find some middle ground if they are to work together in the future.
