Strike Law Reform

I have previously made the case - debating in Parliament and writing for The Times - that we need reform to prevent a militant minority of union bosses from abusing their strike powers, which damage the economy and disrupt the hard-working majority.

We recently saw Mark Serwotka's PCS Union threaten to disrupt the Olympics with just 11% of suppoprt from its membership. Last year saw the most working days lost to strikes in over 20 years.

So, I was interested to see that public support for this safeguard is rising - The Sunday Times YouGov poll at the weekend found people support the change by a ratio of 3 to 1. This week, I discussed the issue on the BBC here.
