Not quite. What you said depends on the labor contract. Also, when workers strike they can be legally replaced, although I am not fond of having prisoners do this work. I have been a member of two unions.
In my country I've never heard about contract exceptions. I believe it's part of the general rules that all work contracts most follow.Let's assume the asker and yourself are talking about the US, do you believe that these garbage workers have such contracts? And are they getting paid while on strike? In my country you don't get paid for strike days.
aah tight wingers. communism is bad because it gives you no right to strike! also, you shouldn't have the right to strike!
It's not a boolean thing, it must be seen in a bigger picture not always the employee or always the company. Aslong as the demands are reasonable it make sense to fullfill them. But some people demands are unreasonable and should be thrown in the trash. So a case by case judgment. Fyi I am in the middle of the scale neither right or left in politics. And my views won't match any party you got in US.
ok but who decides whether the demands are reasonable? the way it tends to work in civilized societies is that workers have the right to strike and can't be laid off no matter their demands. it doesn't mean the company is forced to fulfill them and they're still not payed while striking
*paid. and i should've guessed you not from the US when you mentioned labour. my bad
that's hardly the main concern to me to be honest
bat uh thaght govent wows byad
it's a serious issue but nice one
1) prison labor is unpaid and slavery, or at least we call it that when our enemies do it. 2) workers have the right to strike in democracies.
