Strikes and lockouts (work stoppages)

Trade unions and employers' associations in the private sector have the right to declare a work stoppage for the purpose of working for the advancement of their demands (which must be clear and precise) in industrial disputes and for the protection of their rights under the TUI Act, subject only to the conditions and limitations which are laid down in law. The term „work stoppage” refers to lockouts by employers and strikes in which workers discontinue their normal work to some extent or in its entirety in order to achieve a specific common goal. The term also applies to other comparable actions taken by employers or workers, which may be regarded as the equivalent of work stoppages.
