Trade Union Bill — Report — 16 Mar 2016 at 16:15

Moved by Baroness Neville-Rolfe

1: Clause 3, page 2, line 9, leave out from “are” to end of line 10 and insert “at the relevant time normally engaged in the provision of important public services, unless at that time the union reasonably believes this not to be the case.”

Moved by Lord Kerslake

3: After Clause 3, insert the following new Clause-“Electronic ballotingProvision for electronic balloting: review and piloting scheme(1) The Secretary of State shall commission an independent review, the report of which shall be laid before each House of Parliament, on the delivery of secure methods of electronic balloting for the purpose of ballots held under section 226 of the 1992 Act (requirement of ballot before action by trade union).(2) The use of pilot schemes shall be permitted to inform the design and implementation of electronic balloting before it is rolled out across union strike ballots.(3) The Secretary of State must consider the report and publish and lay before each House of Parliament a strategy for the rollout of secure electronic balloting.(4) For the purpose of preparing the strategy under subsection (3), the Secretary of State must consult relevant organisations including professionals from expert associations to seek their advice and recommendations.(5) The review under subsection (1) shall be commissioned within 6 months of the passing of this Act.”

Ayes 320, Noes 181.
