However, this law has not had much effect, as strikes on public transport still take place in France and workers sometimes refuse to comply with the rules of this law. The public transport sector – public or private – in France is always very militant and ready to strike if its interests are threatened by employers or the government. The Code of Conduct for Industrial Disputes and Notices to Employers contain all the rules relating to voting on industrial action. After the police strikes of 1919, laws were passed prohibiting British police from taking industrial action and discussing this possibility with colleagues. The Police Federation, which was created at the time to deal with employment issues and represent police officers, is putting increasing pressure on the government and repeatedly threatens to strike. One or more labour tribunals for the assessment of labour disputes involving the following companies. A conciliation body should also be set up to promote the settlement of labour disputes. A board of directors should have a chair and two or four other members, as determined by the government concerned. On the recommendation of the parties, the Chair should be an impartial person. This means that the law treats you the same as union members.
Your rights in the event of dismissal depend on whether the class action is protected or not and when you are dismissed. In this case, workers are not absent from work when they go on strike. You retain control of the production facilities. But don`t work. Such a strike is also known as a “pen down” or “tool down”. Workers come to their workplace, but they refuse to work. They also refuse to leave, making it very difficult for the employer to oppose the union and take workers` seats. In June 1998, all employees of the Punjab Municipal Corporation witnessed a strike to protest the national government`s refusal to accept their demands. Paragraph (l) also prohibits workers from going on strike before the expiry of the date specified in the strike (para. (c)). It necessarily follows that this date may be fixed after the fourteen-day period during which workers may not strike (clause b). Paragraph (a) now includes the phrase “within six weeks before the strike” to determine the effectiveness of notice given by workers.
In other words, the strike notice issued by workers under Article 22 will only take effect for a period of six weeks, after which a new dismissal will be necessary. This can be explained more clearly with an example. Suppose the workers announce a strike on 1.1.2001 in accordance with § 22 and set the strike date for 20.1.2001. Now they cannot strike until 20.1.2001, as prescribed in section c. In this case, they cannot set a date in the notice before 14.1.2001 because clause b) prevents them from striking “within 14 days” of such termination. Thus, the requirements of both clauses (b) and (c) are met. Now suppose that the workers do not go on strike as of 20.1.2001, the date they set in the strike notice and observed for several months. Then suddenly, they strike every day after several months. This would run counter to the very purpose of the Identity Act, which is to avoid work stoppages. Unions sometimes hold “advisory” or “indicative” votes to ask their members if they would be willing to take industrial action on a particular issue. Trade unions are free to hold these votes in accordance with their statutes.
However, the union must hold another ballot if it wants to continue industrial action. While the law establishes internal and external bodies for dispute resolution and the prohibition of illegal strikes, lockouts and unfair labour practices, it is essential to have effective internal processes in place to manage conflicts from a compliance perspective. The Code of Conduct on Votes and Notices of Industrial Action and sections 22 and 25 of the Industrial Relations Act 2004, which relate to notices of industrial action, entered into force on 1 October 2005. Strikes may occur for the following reasons: Any worker who continues to engage in illegal strikes within the meaning of the Industrial Action Act shall be sentenced to one month or more in prison and a fine of Rs 1000 or both. A properly conducted election gives you the choice to participate or pursue industrial action. You have the right to apply for an injunction if your union asks you to do so without making such a claim. It is recommended to consult a lawyer before going to court. If you take industrial action, you are likely to violate your employment contract and employer: The Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 applies to all industrial establishments in India that employ one or more workers.
Disputes include labour disputes or disputes supported by unions or a significant number of employees, as well as individual disputes relating to termination of employment. Circumstances and legal rules determine the legality of a strike.
