CBI hits out at strike laws

first_img whatsapp whatsapp CBI hits out at strike laws Share THE CBI is calling for an overhaul of current strike laws to provide greater protection to the public and companies as the threat of industrial action in the UK continues to rise. The business lobby group said the current laws need to reflect the fact that 85 per cent of private sector employees are not union members. It has outlined a number of changes it said will raise the threshold for industrial action.Strikes should only go ahead if 40 per cent of union members vote in favour of action, according to the CBI, which has also argued that firms should be able to continue trading through a strike period by employing agency staff.Other proposals include, extending the strike notice period to 14 days, giving employees the option of whether they want to be represented by a union and imposing frequent audits of union memberships.
