About the event
The pernicious Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill has now been passed by Parliament.
Come and hear IER academics, labour lawyers and leading trade unionists explain how we might counter this existential threat and the drift towards authoritarianism. As part of this discussion, we will be looking at how our movement has responded to threats of illegality in the past, and how that might inform our collective response.
