New Blog – Cameron vs Ordinary Working People

Morrish SolicitorsEmployment, Site News, UncategorisedLeave a Comment

Following the recent general strike by public sector workers, David Cameron pledges “to overhaul an archaic law” stating that strike laws are too easy for workers to rely upon and that “it is time to legislate and it will be in the Conservative manifesto” for the next election. It seem they propose to ban all ‘electronic picketing’ (the use of texts/emails by unions to gain support), make it a requirement for a 50% turnout for any strike ballot to be lawful (rather than a majority as used to elect MPs) and banning ‘rolling strikes’, bringing in a 3 month ‘shelf life’ for any strike action before a new ballot is needed.
