The article examines the impact of general elections in Great Britain. Employment experts suggest that industrial relations will face bigger problems before and after the general elections. Observers expect more industrial action as 2010 was marked by major labor disputes at British Airways (BA), Royal Mail and the civil service. Potential reasons for employee strikes have been attributed to reductions in jobs, low wages and pension issues in the public sector.
