The Trade Union Bill: A necessary progression or troublesome precedent?

A panel discussion on the Trade Union Bill

With the House of Lords recently voting to reject the government's proposals in the controversial Trade Union Bill, we look to discuss the implications the bill would make to the British working landscape. Proponents argue that the proposed Trade Union Bill will ensure less disruption in working people’s lives by controlling industrial action. Opponents say it raises a number of potential human rights concerns. Is this bill ‘undemocratic?’ Does it limit the rights of workers everywhere? Or does it protect society as a whole by ensuring that strikes have the clear support of the workforce? What example does it set for workers' rights and equality in the developing world?

Sara Ogilvie, Policy Officer for Liberty
Professor Len Shackleton, IEA’s Editorial and Research Fellow, and a Professor of Economics at the University of Buckingham
