New guidance (2): Revised Code of Practice on Industrial action

A draft revised Code of Practice on industrial action ballots and notice to employers has been published, available here. The revisions relate to new requirements that will be introduced by the Trade Union Act 2016. These concern ballot turnouts and support, information that must be included on ballot papers, information that must be given to employers, the notice that must be given regarding the start of industrial action and the time within that action must be taken. The new Code will come into force on a date to be advised once it has been approved by Parliament.
