Trade Union Bill — New Clause 2 — Workplace Ballots and Ballots by Electronic Means — 10 Nov 2015 at 16:30
John Penrose MP, Weston-Super-Mare voted with the majority (No).
The majority of MPs voted against allowing trade unions to hold workplace ballots electronically.
MPs were considering the Trade Union Bill.
The proposed new clause rejected in this vote was titled Workplace ballots and ballots by electronic means; it sought to provide for allowing workplace ballots, including on industrial action and for union positions, to be held wholly, or partially, electronically. The clause also sought to require the co-operation of employers, and to prevent employers interfering or surveilling the process.
