This chapter draws together the different emerging themes, suggesting a number of proposals for reform to be made. It suggests that an effective solution to the problems identified in the study requires a wide-ranging response. It is not enough to provide for the suspension of the contracts of employment of those on strike without also legislating to protect strikers from dismissal which would be ineffective without a guarantee of reinstatement. It also suggests that there is no justification for the blanket disqualification of strikers from unemployment benefit and that there are no convincing reasons in principle to account for the withholding of income support from those in dispute. In addressing such questions, reference is made to important developments in a number of other jurisdictions both inside and outside the European community.

Keywords: employment; wages; unfair dismissal; reinstatement; unemployment benefit; social welfare benefit; reform proposal
