Many of our clients are asking advice as to what to do on Friday as staff are either wanting the day off or saying that they feel that they will have difficulty getting to work.
Some companies have made the decision to support the strike and are closing for the day, but for the rest our advice is:
All strike action, whether for a protected strike or an illegal strike is on the basis of no work, no pay.
Our advice is that anyone who does stay away loses a day’s pay, but that this should not be treated as a disciplinary offence. Much as we did in the stay aways in 1980.
If anyone would like wording for a notice for staff, please contact Debbie or Tessa at the office.
