Title
Strike action - friend or foe
Description
The purpose of setting up a trade union or belonging to one is that collective power is a fundamental concept of a trade union. An employee achieves very little when he or she is a “one man show”. A single employee can, for instance, not embark on a protected strike. Employees therefore organize themselves in trade unions in order to maximize their collective power in what we call “power play” against the employer. This ensures greater participation by employees in the regulation of their workplace matters. It is this positive effect of power-play that has been recognized by the legislature and embodied in law.
