For TAFE members we are seeking clarification of the processes please contact MSC after reviewing the fact sheet.

Industrial action refers to action in which employees work in a manner different from the customary manner. It includes restrictions, limitations, or bans upon work.

Failing to attend for work can constitute industrial action, as can a refusal to perform work such as particular tasks and duties while at the workplace.

Types of industrial action include; strike action, work bans, Go slows, work to rule, stop work meetings and picketing.
