Trade Union Congress to hold ‘right to strike’ protest
The Trades Union Congress (TUC) has declared they will be holding a national ‘right to strike’ day of protest on the 1st of February.
This has been announced after the government introduced the minimum service levels bill on the 10th of January.
The bill would mean that employers would have to state the minimum required number of workers needed to work on a strike day to the unions.
This notice would need to be stated by employers as soon as unions informed them of a planned strike.
If an employee is made to work because of the minimum service levels and instead strikes, they would lose their protection from unfair dismissal.
