Industrial Action – The New Law: Webinar

Published 25 April 2017

On 1 March 2017, most of the key provisions of the Trade Union Act 2016 came into force, including higher balloting thresholds for industrial action (particularly in important public services) and a new time limit on the validity of ballots for discontinuous industrial action.

In this webinar, Partners Nick Chronias and Guy Bredenkamp, who lead our Employment Relations unit and advise regularly on trade union issues and industrial action, explore the implications and effect of the new law. They also examine the legal issues that have played out in the long dispute between the rail operator and the unions relating to the introduction of driver-only trains.
