Strike negotiations could resolve ongoing disputes
Disputes may benefit from strike negotiations.
Strike negotiations might prove a wise move in order to resolve any action being taking during the royal wedding or London Olympics.
This follows comments by Labour leader Ed Miliband who has stated he would "totally condemn" any attempts to disrupt either public event with strikes.
Mr Miliband issues a warning to union bosses that he believe strikes were "a legitimate last resort" in industrial disputes, but suggested he did not want to see them used as part of efforts to challenge the coalition government.
It has recently been reported that transport and public sector strikes may still be scheduled on April 29th, the day of the royal wedding, although unions have since played the idea down.
Two days of strike negotiations recently led to previously planned action by binmen being cancelled.
Staff in Birmingham had intended to walk out on Thursday (January 13th) and Friday but this was cancelled following discussions between union officials and the city council.
