The right to strike is an important one, but the public and private sectors should be treated equally: government should ensure that when unions ballot members simultaneously, ballots are counted separately by employers

By Tim Leunig

Abstract

Today sees the largest public sector strike since the 1970s. Tim Leunig argues that the ability for public sector employees to strike should be equal to their private sector colleagues – i.e. when unions ballot members simultaneously, these should be calculated separately by employer. He argues that this would lead to fewer strikes and fewer working days lost to strikes
