Strike and picketing rules for engineering strike agreed

Numsa shop stewards and organisers should negotiate the details with employers where applicable eg where the picketers can gather etc.


The following strike rules have been agreed between the Employer Associations Federated to SEIFSA and NUMSA on behalf of its membership:


• Those taking part in the strike will not be paid for any period or periods that they are not working properly or at all. They will also not receive pay for partial performance during the course of the industrial action as the company will not accept a tender of part performance.
