Closing the Gender Pay Gap   info

A present lack of incentive on employers to publish pay-related data needs to be addressed with a view to establishing accountability and engagement.

Tackling intimidation of non-striking workers   info
Prospect believes there is absolutely no need to create further restrictions on picketing or protests. We do not consider there is any evidence for the need for tougher enforcement provisions. The examples given in the consultation paper of intimidating behaviour are extremely rare and the existing provisions are more than strong enough to deal with any exceptional and isolated incidents.

Ballot thresholds in important public services   info
Prospect is opposed to the introduction of balloting thresholds in important public services. We believe the new rules are unnecessary. We believe the right to strike is a fundamental human right, and this is safeguarded by international law, including the International Labour Organisation conventions, the European Social Charter, and the European Convention of Human Rights. The government's proposal to introduce additional stringent thresholds for industrial action in public services is undermining the right to strike and likely to be in breach of our international obligations.
