Why no right to strike?

Workers' rights are noticeably absent from the debate about the General Election, with all three main parties competing over their plans to cut public spending.

The Tories and Liberal Democrats talk of plans to further restrict the right to strike, but while Labour doesn't go this far, it has in practice presided over a significant tightening of the anti-union laws.

There's an interesting article about the impact of the recent court judgments against UNITE and RMT on the Solidarity magazine web site.
