I agree, but we must be pragmatic. A minimum turnout can not really be argued as a move against the right to strike, so long as the figure is reasonable. However, if you remove legal protection from industrial action, you can never hope to recieve support or indifference from anyone anywhere near the left of the spectrum. And bearing in mind the make up of this House, it'll be a very difficult Bill to pass.
Well, I'll support a bill with a 50% minimum turnout, but it's not my preferred option.
Being serious for a minute. Look at some of Barbara Castle's 1960s proposals such as the 'cooling off' period of 60 days, and end the 28 day rule for the start of industrial action (say have six months), and you'd reduce the number of strikes by a fair amount.
