Unions keep up campaign against trade union bill

Trade unions are continuing to campaign against the Trade Union Bill which, if passed in its current form, will particularly impact on public sector unions. They will be faced with thresholds for vote for strike action if deemed to be in "important" public services and will also be hit by proposals to end employer deductions of union contributions and to reduce facility time for union officials.

EPSU and PSI have been supporting the campaign with letters to ministers and submissions to consultations. [Read more at > TUC->www.tuc.org.uk] [And at > EPSU->http://www.epsu.org/a/11835]
