Trade Union Bill

Trade Union Bill Will Seriously Damage Industrial Relations And Bankrupt The Labour Party Says GMB

Blatant one sided approach is guaranteed to poison the relationship between workers and their managers and will lead to even more trouble says GMB.

GMB commented on the Trades Union Bill published today (15th July) for consultation.

The Bill introduces 50% turnout ballot threshold in a strike ballot. It requires 40% support to take industrial action from all members eligible to vote in health, education, fire, transport, water, security and energy sectors including border force and nuclear commissioning. It requires unions to give 14 days notice for strike action. It lifts to current ban on using agency workers to do the jobs of those on strike. It requires an opt-in for trade union political funds.
