Sir: Martyn Fribbens (letter, 23 September) claims that the TUC is ignoring the threat of the Millennium Bug. Far from ignoring the potential for job losses, the TUC has been working with unions to make sure that they are prepared for the millennium. And unions are working with employers to minimise any potential impact.

A joint letter from the TUC and Action 2000 was distributed to all delegates at the Trades Union Congress last week. The letter highlighted the problem and the possible consequences for jobs and urged all union representatives to take action to ensure employers are prepared.
