The Confederation of British Industry wants the rules for strike ballot to be changed. The want at least 40% of the workforce to have to vote. The law only calls for a majority or those who vote to vote for a strike. The CBI says that this rules causes strikes based on only a few members' wishes. A spokesman said that the job losses ahead means that the government should make it harder to strike. They also wan the government to cut the number of days that employees can consult on redundancies to 30 days, in order for workforces to respond quicker to changes in demand. A spokesman for the TUC union said that the United Kingdom has very tight restrictions on the right to strike, and further restrictions would violate human rights.
