Guidance on picketing for employers, workers or members of the public who may be affected by a picket or any associated activities.
This Code of Practice provides practical guidance on picketing in trade disputes for those contemplating, organising or taking part in a picket or activities associated with picketing.
The DRAFT Code of Practice on Picketing is provided for information only and is not yet in force. This draft has been amended to reflect new legal provisions on picketing made by the Trade Union Act 2016. The draft Code was laid in the Houses of Parliament on 5 December 2016 where, following a period of 40 days from that date and subject to the approval of the Houses of Parliament, it may be commenced on a date determined by the Government. At the point of commencement, it will supersede the current Code of Practice on Picketing issued in 1992.
