The DTI has, today, issued a consultation paper on proposed revisions to the Code of Practice on Industrial Action Ballots and Notice to Employers.

The consultation document includes proposals to :

  • ensure that the Code reflects the changes to industrial action law which are contained within the Employment Relations Act 2004;
  • provide new guidance for unions and employers relating to the information that unions are required to give employers in advance of industrial action ballots and in advance of any subsequent industrial action.

The consultation runs for twelve weeks, ending on 3 June 2005.
