    Comprised of 8 Parts and 59 sections concerning the registration, constitution and administration of trade unions, the protection of fundamental rights of workers, the promotion of industrial relations, and industrial disputes. Registration is compulsory, but may be refused or cancelled if the trade union "is engaged in or is about to engage in activities likely to cause a serious threat to public safety, public order or public health", or has not effectively represented the interests of its members in general. Employers may not refuse to engage or otherwise discriminate against an employee because he is or is not a trade union member, and closed shop agreements are prohibited. Unions may not expell or impose sanctions on a member who refuses to participate in or act in furtherance of a strike or to act unlawfully. Where ten employees are members of a registered trade union, the employer must recognize the representational status of the union with regard to those employees. Any strike or lockout is prohibited until the dispute has been reported to the Minister responsible, and a 45 to 60 day cooling-off period has elapsed. Strikes must be approved by at least two-thirds of members present and voting at the trade union meeting called for the purpose of considering the issue. Revised edition through Act 17 of 1994 available.
