Dispute resolution and strike action

Voluntary conciliation machinery, appropriate to national conditions, should be available for helping to prevent and settle industrial disputes between employers and workers.

Voluntary Conciliation and Arbitration Recommendation, 1951, (No. 92)

In principle, employers and workers, and their organizations should be left alone in resolving their disputes. The methods they decide upon are part of the organization of their activities and programmes. Bodies and procedures for the settlement of labour disputes should be so conceived as to contribute to the promotion of collective bargaining.
