Legality of Go-Slow Strikes in India

In “Legality of Go-Slow Strikes in India,” the author explores the issue of legality of “go-slow” strikes in India which is a complex and controversial issue that has not been clearly resolved by the law yet. He builds an understanding of the current legal position of go-slows in India as per labour laws such as the Industrial Disputes Act, 1947 and judicial interpretation. He also makes a comparative analysis with the foreign legal approach to have a holistic overview of the international approach. The author states that there is an urgent need to take a decisive stance on the status of go-slows by adopting either the United Kingdom’s approach of making go-slow legal as an ‘Action Short of Strike’(ASOS) with certain conditions, or Belgium’s approach of classifying go-slows as illegal strikes.
