Most bosses expect industrial action.

MOST employers are expecting an increase in industrial action in the coming months.

A survey of 500 bosses by law firm DLA Piper showed two thirds believe industrial disputes are in danger of stifling Britain's economic recovery.

But the business leaders were split on whether industrial relations law should be changed, with 41% wanting to wait while 39% thought it would be a good idea.

David Bradley, of DLA Piper, said: "It is worrying that industrial unrest is on the rise and potentially could thwart economic recovery. In a volatile economy, employers face multiple risks and challenges making it imperative to focus resources and attention on employee relations."
