(p.40) [4] Industrial Action and Unfair Dismissal
The Right to Strike

K. D. Ewing

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with the relevant provisions of the law of unfair dismissal for those engaged in a strike or other industrial action. Section 62 of the Employment Protection Act of 1978 (EPCA), even without the 1982 and 1990 amendments was a remarkable measure. Even where the jurisdiction of the tribunal was opened up, it was very difficult to secure a finding of unfair dismissal. However, a major weakness of this is the fact that employers are not required to reinstate a worker who has been unfairly dismissed. As far as the dismissal of strikers is concerned, there is enough evidence to suggest that assumptions about employers not dismissing were hopelessly misplaced.
