Tories to outlaw effective strike action on rail

May 19, 2017 at 12:59 pm (elections, posted by JD, Tory scum, unions, workers)

This item, tucked away in the Tories’ “pro-worker” manifesto, seems to have escaped the media’s notice:

‘We will work with train companies and their employees to agree minimum service levels during periods of industrial dispute – and if we cannot find a voluntary agreement, we will legislate to make this mandatory’ (p.60)

H/t: Comrade Tony and thanks to Roger McCarthy and others BTL for pointing out the link to the image I originally posted had broken.

    What are we looking at? Nothing comes up in either Chrome nor Torch.

    But from record, measures to stop militant unions going berzerk always upset lefties. Nothing to see here, I contend.

    As Mick says – all I can see is a broken image.

    Here you go:

    ‘We will work with train companies and their employees to agree minimum service levels during periods of industrial dispute – and if we cannot find a voluntary agreement, we will legislate to make this mandatory’. (p.60)

      Thanks.

      It’s left wing hysteria to say this bans strikes – it just stops the public being kicked in the balls so hard in transport chaos, which is quite nice actually.

      Just like the Trade Union Act makes sure something even close to a proper majority vote can trigger a strike.

    Whatever…

      Indeed. The transport lefties could do what some union guys did in Australia – just give free rides until the dispute is over.
