International and European Protection of the Right to Strike

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the extent to which international and European supervisory bodies may legitimately intervene in circumstances which industrial action is taken. The basic tenet to which all supervisory bodies subscribe is that those who organize and participate in industrial action should not be unduly penalized for their role in a legitimate strike. In such circumstances, States have an obligation to ensure that employers do not dismiss strikers. State powers, such as enactment of legislation criminalizing industrial action, policing of pickets, and imprisonment of strikers, are subject to additional constraints.
