How will the proposed ‘Trade Union Bill’ affect London?

It’s a move that could prevent some of the capital’s biggest strikes taking place. 

Ministers have unveiled plans for a clampdown on industrial action. 

the proposed ‘Trade Union Bill’ will impose a minimum of 50 per cent turnout - while public sector strikes would need the backing of at least 40 per cent of those eligible to vote. 

The government says it will balance the right to strike with the rights of working people and businesses.

But Unions say it’s an attack on workers rights.

Nick Le Riche, an employment partner at law firm Bircham Dyson Bell, explains more.
