  • The TUC’s Sarah Veale writes for Left Foot Forward on the CBI’s ideas to reduce the scope  for industrial action: “At the moment a simple majority of those balloted must vote in favour for the strike to be legal. The CBI proposals would mean that not only must there be a majority but in addition 40 per cent of those balloted must vote “yes”. In other words abstentions and non-voting would count as votes against. If these rules were to be applied to, say, local authority elections, there would be very few councils operating.”
