ATL comment on Government thresholds for strike ballots in education and other public services

ATL | Association of Teachers and Lecturers

Dr Mary Bousted, general secretary of the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), said:

“There is still not nearly enough clarity from the Government as to how strike ballot thresholds will work in practice, which undermines Parliament’s ability to properly scrutinise the Trade Union Bill.

“The Government has a poor understanding of how schools and colleges work, and this ill-thought through, ineffective policy will create unnecessary complexities. This will lead to a greater likelihood of legal challenges from employers which will prolong disputes, when, like the wider public, union members want a resolution.

“This legislation will do nothing to serve the interests of students or their parents.”
