Quick Reference

Strike action that is taken with the explicit aim of challenging the government or influencing its policy. Political strikes are an important feature of the industrial relations of a number of countries, and in France, for example, there is a tradition of unions using large-scale protest strikes to influence the legislative process. In the UK, political strikes are rare and are unlawful as they do not involve action in ‘furtherance of a trade dispute’. [See golden formula and immunity.]
