POLITICAL STRIKE

As distinct from a strike intended to impose the aims of a collective agreement, a political strike is directed not against the employer but against Parliament or the Government; the intention is that the latter, in order to avoid damage to the national economy as a whole, will thereby be prevailed upon to take a particular form of action, e.g. to pass a law. Since they are not directed at aims that can be regulated by collective bargaining, political strikes are deemed to be contrary to law.
