ABSTRACT
The article discusses the no-strike agreement among companies. It explains that a no-strike agreement does not have to be complicated. However, the difficulty is in persuading the union to enter into a no-strike agreement, especially if it is legally binding. An employer would need to be in a powerful bargaining position to get them to agree not to use collective withdrawal of labor. Private employers can incorporate the terms of a collective agreement covering individual rights and obligations into one's contract of employment.
