Trade Union Bill could breach people’s human rights
The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has advised Parliament that a number of measures in the Trade Union Bill may breach the right to strike.
Article 11 of the Human Rights Act gives everyone the right to form and join a union, and to protest peacefully. Some provisions in the Bill could contravene the UK’s obligations, including restrictions on how much time public sector employees can spend on union work and also increasing the notice of industrial action from seven days to two weeks.
The EHRC has also produced a parliamentary briefing on the Bill.
