The Right to Strike in International Disputes Threatened at EU level – EFBWW Call for Action
The combined effects of the Laval and Viking judgments, together with some other EU regulations and an increased inclination of employers to settle disputes in court, have put the right to strike in international disputes under threat. An ILO Expert Report from 2010 is confirming this situation and saying that the Viking and Laval judgments create a situation where the rights under ILO Convention No 87 concerning Freedom of Association and Protection of the Right to Organise cannot be exercised. On the other hand, the Lisbon Treaty and the Charter of Fundamental Rights has entered into force from 1 December 2009, which also makes it an obligation for the EU to accede to the European Convention on Human Rights, protected by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. The EFBWW has analyzed the situation regarding fundamental social rights in the EU, and call on the European Commission to take action in a number of specific legislative and non-legislative areas. The EFBWW analysis and call for action is available below.
