Petition: Stop subsidising the strikes


You may be surprised to learn that you’ve likely helped pay for the organising of the latest round of strikes.

Through trade union facility time, union representatives in the public sector can commit a portion of their working hours to union duties; all at the expense of taxpayers. While we pay in, they walk out!

In 2020-21 alone, this practice cost taxpayers almost £100 million - the highest value since the Cabinet Office began publishing the data!

It’s time for the government to crack down on facility time and stop letting taxpayers’ money subsidise strikes. Sign our petition, and we’ll deliver it straight to the Cabinet Office!
