Mick Lynch, the general secretary of the RMT union, has warned that the UK could soon be as oppressive as China and Russia in stamping out union activity.
He told Sophy Ridge that proposed laws restricting unions would make it impossible for workers to take industrial action.
He said: "Were far getting to a situation where were going to have laws that are as oppressive as those that exist in Russia and China.
"Theyre trying to make it impossible for trade unions to exist in this country.
"Theyre trying to make it impossible for the people of this country to campaign against poverty....Theyre trying to regulate unions."
