The government is threatening the right to strike. We spoke to six people across the UK who explain just why they needed that right. No-one goes on strike without a good reason. It’s a last resort for workers when their bosses are being unreasonable. Taking away the right to strike tilts the balance in the workplace too far towards the employers – and that will mean workers can’t defend their jobs or pay, stand up for decent services and safety at work. And strikes are at historically low levels.
