Government listening breathlessly in front of the strikers in Britain, considering new strict laws – these workers will not be able to strike


Rail crisis in Britain deepens as RMT members boycott work for four days. Business leaders said the strike would cost pubs and restaurants in England £2.5 billion.

Britain’s Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is considering bringing a new type of law in the new year to deal with strikers. Meanwhile, a rail union strike has brought Britain closer to becoming a “ghost town”. According to ‘The Sun’, Rishi Sunak is going to introduce tough new laws at the beginning of the new year to crack down on the strikers.

However, Prime Minister Sunak is understood to have gone cold on proposals to ban ambulance drivers and firefighters from going on strike in tougher laws already proposed, but has agreed to give Henry VIII-style powers to ministers. These powers would be used to ensure that public services (such as hospitals, fire brigades and schools) would continue to have some staff working despite the strike and that there would not be a complete closure of these institutions.

According to the new law, the cabinet ministers will have the right to decide the minimum standards related to the strike and they will be able to decide on industrial laxity. In order to crack down on the strikers, the Sunak government is also considering increasing the voting percentage of the striking workers from 40 percent to 50 percent. And when the unions declare a strike, their time period should be reduced from six months to three months.

Although these proposals have not been finalized yet, but there is talk that these may increase the conflict between the unions and the Parliament and the matter may reach the court.

Meanwhile, the rail crisis in Britain deepens as RMT members boycott work on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Business leaders said the devastating rail strike would cost pubs and restaurants in England an estimated £2.5 billion.
