A Trade Union must repudiate Unofficial Industrial Action in order to protect itself from legal proceedings by an employer. The Trade Union must:
"Your union has repudiated the call for industrial action to which this notice relates and will give no support to unofficial industrial action taken in response to it. If you are dismissed while taking unofficial industrial action, you will have no right to complain of Unfair Dismissal”.
The Agency’s Enquiry Point is available to employers, employees, trade unions and others. Enquiry Point advisors provide information and advice on a wide range of employment matters. The Enquiry Point is also an important contact point for identifying circumstances, or clients, who would benefit from being referred to other Agency services.
The Enquiry Point provides clear, confidential, independent and impartial advice to assist the caller in resolving issues in the workplace.
While the advisors cannot provide a legal opinion they can help callers gain a better understanding of their rights and responsibilities as well as identifying possible options to help resolve their issues.
