What is a strike?
The Labour Relations Act defines a strike as “the partial or complete refusal to work, or the obstruction of work by persons, for the purpose of remedying a grievance or resolving a dispute in respect of any matter of mutual interest between employer and employee”.
Is there a difference between a legal and an illegal strike?
Yes, there is. An illegal strike is known as an unprotected strike and it is a refusal to work by an employee or group or employees who have made the decision, without consulting any authority to strike. These employees risk dismissal as their actions are not protected under the CCMA. A legal strike is known as a protected strike and complies with the requirements set out in the Labour Relations Act. This takes place when an employee or group of employees attempts consultation and conciliation at CCMA to settle their disputes. If they are unsuccessful with this, the CCMA issues a certificate that a dispute is unresolved and may then give their employer 48 hours’ notice of their intension to strike and the setting of picketing rules between the parties commences. Employees may not be dismissed under a protected strike as their right to strike is protected. However, in both instances’ employees will not be paid for time they do not work.
