United Kingdom -Government attempting to curb right to strike -March 25, 2013

The TUC has called on the House of Lords to reject a bill that would prevent 3000 employees of the National Crime Agency from taking industrial action in the future. The Crime and Courts Bill contains clauses against the right to strike, which the TUC points out is a fundamental right. In a press release, the TUC calls the bill the start of yet another attack on public sector workers.
