According to our research, 15 out of the 41 countries we monitored confirmed that employers can replace striking workers with temporary workers – significantly curtailing the impact of a strike. In Saudi Arabia and the UAE, our lawyers also explained that unions don’t exist and strikes are illegal. Therefore, whether striking is a viable mechanism for employees wanting to elicit dialogue with employers very much depends on where they are based.
