Employees must have the right to:

  • ensure that any industrial action in which they take part is lawful and endorsed by their union

  • report for work during industrial action by others if they are not involved in it

  • not engage in unlawful picketing

  • not engage in unofficial industrial action

  • gain their employer’s permission before attending union workplace meetings.

  • belong or to choose not to belong to a union (this also extends to prospective employees)

  • take part in the union’s activities at any reasonable time

  • not be refused employment or discriminated against for a reason which relates to a prohibited list (ie, because their names appear on a blacklist of known trade union activists)
