Industrial action by other unions

Published: 24/11/2015
Publication code: 004745
Occasions may arise where RCN members are employed in a workplace where colleagues in other unions are involved in industrial action. This paper outlines the position of those RCN members in respect of the particular action, and advises what approaches they should take relating to their own contract of employment, while ensuring that they do not undermine the lawful industrial action taken by trade union colleagues.
