Our strike instructions give general instructions for what to do during industrial action and provide basic information about industrial action. The instructions include most common strike-related questions as well as instructions for associations and shop stewards on how to act during industrial action. However, each industrial action is different and there will be specified instructions for the strike.
A strike or work stoppage is a form of industrial action in which people refuse to work. Participation in a strike organised by a trade union or its member association is always legal.
Under the ban on overtime work, workers are prohibited from doing all work outside regular working hours. Such work is, for example, the accumulation of flexitime, actual extra work and overtime work, additional work and overtime related to on-call work outside regular working hours, and work-related travel outside regular working hours. Under a ban on shift changes, employees are prohibited from changing shifts at the request of the employer.
If you lose your earnings as a result of a work stoppage, we will pay you a strike pay. You need a valid Pro membership. You are entitled to strike pay from the date of joining if you are on strike.
