    V1289 - Trade Union (Repeal) Bill 2017, TSR Conservative & Unionist Party



    A

    BILL

    TO

    ensure fair and reliable ballots take place.



    BE IT ENACTED by The Queen's most Excellent Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Commons in this present Parliament assembled, in accordance with the provisions of the Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949, and by the authority of the same, as follows:—

    1 - Repeal
    The Trade Union Bill 2015 (V901) is hereby repealed.

    2 - Commencement, short title and extent
    (1) This Act shall come into force on Royal Assent.
    (2) This Act may be cited as the Trade Union (Repeal) Act 2017.
    (3) This Act extends to United Kingdom.

    Notes

    At the very centre of our democracy is fairness and reliability with our voting system. Online ballots do not satisfy this. It is very easy to rig and because of this security risk trade unions should not be allowed to provide online ballots. This therefore makes the ballot process fair and reliable; the exact same thing we strive for in our democracy.

    Nay. A trade union vote is not as important as a vote for positions of sovereign power, and the security concerns are overblown.

    Why do you think it is the right thing? All they have done is made a claim and not even attempted to back it up in the notes.

    So the internet is used by billions of people and businesses on a daily basis to manage trillions of pounds worth of assets, has been used by the Labour Party to conduct a leadership ballot which was undisputedly valid, but for some reason cannot be used for a strike ballot because it's insecure? Sorry, not buying it. Nay.

    One Nay was removed in seat 6 due to a double vote.
    One Abstain was changed to an Aye in seat 37.
    One Nay was changed to an Abstain in seat 41.
    One Abstain was changed to an Aye in seat 48.
    One Abstain was changed to an Aye by post in seat 27.

    Order!
    The Ayes to the right, 23.
    The Noes to the left, 21.
    Abstentions, 3.

    I think the Ayes have it! The Ayes have it! Unlock!!
