Why do some unions like no-srike agreements?Why
does the TUC dislike them in principle?
Hi Lisa,Why do some unions like no strike agreements?
Usually because that is the wish of the majority of the members
of the union. Remember that a union is there to represent the views
of its members. Some unions have decided that they wish to have
a no-strike policy.
Now this removes a major negotiation point when
it comes to the relationship between the company and the union.
If a union has stated that it will not strike then that weakens
their position in negotiations and can result in the company taking
advantage of the unions stance. I suppose that is why the TUC is
opposed in principle to no-strike agreements. Remember again that
the TUC represents the views of ITS members (various unions) so
you could say that some unions support non-strike agreements, but
the majority of unions do not and make their views known through
The Welsh Development agency are proud of the introduction
of non-strike agreements in Wales - check out the details at http://www.autoline.org/WDA/home.html
- and search for the word 'strike'.
