It means that when workers democratically vote to strike, they could be forced to work and sacked if they don’t. That’s wrong, unworkable, and almost certainly illegal.
These new laws are a direct attack on working people’s fundamental right to strike to defend their pay, terms and conditions.
Instead of listening to the concerns of working people and negotiating fair deals, Rishi Sunak has decided to undermine the right to strike.
Every working person is under attack from these new laws.
We need to reach MPs urgently to ensure they act to defend the right to strike. And the people they’re most likely to listen to are their own constituents.
Whichever party your MP is in, you have a part to play:
If your MP is a Conservative: use this form to request a meeting with them.
If your MP is NOT a Conservative: use this form to encourage them to publicly support the right to strike.
