Definition: is an official, signed, documented notification for the appropriate government or management agency presented by the workers’ union, which illustrates the employees’ intention to proceed with a strike, oftentimes after failing to negotiate effectively with the employer. Such a practice is the most prevalently common for the trade unions. In the majority of cases, the document includes a summary of the workers’ complaints and conditions, a claim that the negotiation with the employer has failed to reach an agreement, an intended approximate time of the strike and its duration, and a suggestion to prepare for the possible effects of the strike and an advice to return to the negotiation.
In a Sentence:
