Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I knew that labour unions had been nerfed de jure stateside, but it never occurred to me that they had been nerfed quite that badly... I guess I'm going to have to add another thing to the checklist of provisions that I want in a European constitution: The right of labour to organize and engage in labour conflicts - including but not limited to strikes and blockades - shall not be infringed.

(I must admit that neither did I imagine that such a ban would be constitutional under the US constitution - I fondly imagined that such a ban would violate the right to peaceable assembly.)

But trying to get back on topic (kind of), surely the Germans have not hamstrung their labour unions that way?
