Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Are you the employee in this scenario?
what industrial action do you propose to take?
No the employer, I employ Radiographers, but as a Company we do not recognise any trade unions, the Radiographers in the NHS are about to stage a 1/2 day walkout,they are members of the Society for Radiographers
So are you, as the employer, actually party to this dispute or is the dispute with the NHS.
The dispute is between the Radiographers who work directly for the NHS and are members of the union "The Society of Radiographers". I have a few Radiographers who work for me who are also members of the above union. I am not indispute with my employees, they would be supporting their union colleagues in the NHS
Hi political industrial action of this nature is unlawful. In order for employees to be protected the industrial action in which they take part must involve a dispute between their employer and the trade union. This means that if your employees do take part they will not have immunity from disciplinary action. You can inform the employees/ union of this in advance of the action.
If you have any further questions about this please do ask.
