This chapter discusses the standard response of the supervisory bodies in the International Labour Organization to public welfare considerations. The right to strike may only be restricted or prohibited in the following cases: (1) in the public service only for public servants exercising authority in the name of the State; (2) in essential services, that is, services the interruption of which would endanger the life, personal safety or health; and (3) in the event of an acute national emergency and for a limited period of time.
