STRIKES IN ESSENTIAL SERVICES — THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION
Author: Nikita L. Lyutov
Rubric: OTHER LEGAL ISSUES
Annotation: Historically, the right to strike in the essential services was
extremely limited, with examples of state based repressive activity.
Modern Russian society has a stronger societal — State consensus
though this is under pressure from economic factors including
reductions in living standards. Most expressions of dissatisfaction
take place outside the legal framework. The current regulation of
strikes is not balanced and this paper outlines the current situation
within its historical context.
