Industrial action is a sanction used by a group of employees against its employer. It usually arises when there is a failure to settle a dispute about terms and conditions of employment.
This topic defines lawful and unlawful industrial action; and the law relating to balloting, giving notice to the employer, picketing.
Essentially, there are two broad categories of industrial action.
A strike (where labour is withdrawn completely by workers).
Industrial action short of a strike (where there is partial performance by workers of their contractual duties).
