BusinessTalk TV: Thatcher’s unfinished business - Tories vs the unions

Have your say

IN THE latest edition of Business Talk TV, we look at proposals that could lead to a reduction in the number of strikes.

As the election approaches, the Conservatives have provoked a row with the unions over plans to ban them from taking strike action without the support of at least 40 per cent of their members in certain sectors.

Deputy Business Editor Greg Wright is joined by Paul Scholey of trade union law firm Morrish Solicitors.
