What is a strike protocol?

A strike protocol is set of ground rules that can be negotiated between the union and the Employer to govern the conduct of a strike. There is no legal requirement to negotiate such a protocol, or to include anything in particular in it. Issues that commonly feature in a strike protocol at a university include the length of time picketers can delay access to campus, the continuation of strikers’ benefits during strike action, continued access to employer-provided email, and the conditions under which strikers may access their offices or labs.
