Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Oh, ok, that makes more sense. I though that the law was against strikes. From what you write it's a lack of a law protecting employees from being fired as a result. Subtle difference. My bad.

I am pointing out thet "the right to peacefully assemble" is not the same as "the right to strike" (you need to assemble to plan a strike and to picket or demonstrate, but striking can just mean not showing up for work and that bears no relationship whatever to peaceful assembly) and that "illegally striking" might be a breach of contract and grounds for termination. Also, picketing might be construed as trespassing, etc.

There are lots of ways to get you if they want to.
