Trade Union Law Reformed

Changes to the trade union law made via the Trade Union Act 2016.

The majority if the changes are to the rules on industrial action, including the introduction of new voting thresholds, setting a time limit of 4 months on industrial action after a ballot has taken place and increasing the notice that employers must be given of industrial action.

It is anticipated that the changes will come into force soon, but as yet there are no confirmed dates for implementation.
