Frances O’Grady says it is no wonder governments want to make it harder for unions to ballot for strike action
Tomorrow’s scheduled strike was called off late yesterday afternoon after a week of talks between unions and the government.
TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “It’s only because health workers showed that, if necessary, they were prepared to take industrial action that ministers agreed to come to the negotiating table.
“No wonder the government wants to make it harder for unions to ballot for strike action.”
The TUC has long campaigned for unions to be able to ballot their members online. You can sign a petition here.
