Strikes and Lockouts in a Democratic Perspective

Ruth Ben-Israel

This book deals with the essence of the right to strike or lockout and the importance of legal recognition of these institutions in maintaining a democratic society. It covers the prevalent approaches to limits to the right to strike in a democratic society and discusses the mutual relations between the recognition of the right to strike as a universal human right and as basic constitutional rights in a democratic society.


Chapters deal with the status of the strike and the lockout as basic constitutional rights; the strike: level of action, type of action, objectives of action, limitations and prohibitions; the lockout: status and definition.
