United Kingdom - Unions succeeded in watering down controversial trade union bill - April 30, 2016

In an interesting blog the modifications in the controversial trade union bill are discussed. The government has dropped some of the most damaging proposals. However, according to the author of the blog, some harmful aspects of the draft bill are still in the text, like the unfair strike ballot turnout thresholds, rules about identifying picket leaders to the police and new membership rules that will cost the unions time and money.
