WHAT DOES SYMPATHY STRIKE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Solidarity action

Solidarity action is industrial action by a trade union in support of a strike initiated by workers in another, separate enterprise. The term "secondary action" is often used with the intention of distinguishing different types of trade dispute with a worker's direct employer, and so may be used to refer to a dispute with the employer's parent company, its suppliers, financiers, contracting parties, or any other employer in another industry. In most countries there are limits on the purposes for which people may go on strike, and in many English-speaking nations restrictions have been placed on which organisations trade unions may strike against. In the US and UK workers can typically strike against their direct employer only. In continental Europe, solidarity action is generally lawful and the right to strike is seen as a part of broader political freedom.
