Prison Officers Banned From Striking
Commenting on the decision today (Wednesday) by the High Court to uphold the ban on prison officers taking strike action, TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady said:
"Today's decision will do nothing to fix the crisis in our prisons. Ministers should be listening to prison officers' concerns about staffing and safety, rather than pursuing legal action against them.
"The ban on industrial action has demoralised staff providing a vital service. It needs to be overturned."
