BCC: New Strike Laws are a Sensible Rebalancing of Rights

Commenting on the new legislation to change strike laws, Dr Adam Marshall, Executive Director of Policy and External Affairs, said:

"Individuals and businesses depend on our public services, so the right to strike must be exercised with the greatest restraint. Higher thresholds should apply when a strike puts people at risk or affects the ability of large numbers of our fellow citizens to go about their day-to-day business and earn a living. Businesses will see this as a sensible piece of legislation that carefully balances the rights of those wishing to withhold their labour, against the rights of those who rely on access to essential services.”
