It used to be the common view that only dictators ban strikes and shackle trade unions. In Australia currently there are so many legal restrictions on industrial action that the right to strike is effectively illegal and even bans may breach industrial laws.
Victorian nurses and state public sector workers were forced to lift their industrial bans. Qantas workers took a very little industrial action before being locked out and barred from taking further action.
What tactics and strategy can workers use to win industrial campaigns? What are the limits that Australian governments have imposed on the right to strike or other forms of industrial action?
