Key Points from the DLA Piper Survey:
- 88% of respondents anticipate industrial action in the coming months
- 50% believe that the Government should step in to prevent strikes
- 66% believe that public sector ‘coordinated action’ will damage their businesses
David Bradley, a senior partner at DLA Piper said that \”As the threat of a double dip recession remains, it is worrying that industrial unrest is on the rise and potentially could thwart economic recovery. In a volatile economy, employers face multiple risks and challenges making it imperative to focus resources and attention on employee relations to protect and nurture performance and profits. The study\’s findings provide strong encouragement for the Government from business leaders to tighten the laws around strike action. Careful consideration will be required as trade unions already consider existing laws as punitive and disproportionate.\”
