Ed Miliband has insisted he will press ahead with changes to Labour's relationship with the trade unions.
Trades Union Congress general secretary Frances O'Grady described the issue as "an internal Labour party matter".
She said: "I think there's a real danger that this debate gets out of touch with what's happening to most ordinary people in Britain."
