Industrial Action and Unions

We understand that industrial action can cause major disruption to your business and have long term implications if not managed effectively.

Industrial action can include:

  • employees going on strike
  • employees imposing work bans on performing or accepting work
  • employers locking out employees from their employment

Industrial action is generally taken to protest in relation to poor working conditions (including safety matters); low wages and to increase bargaining power when negotiating enterprise agreements.
