Industry Update

Message from the Director

Welcome to this month’s edition of Industry Update.

This month we cover the important issue of industrial action involving strikes, which affects workers, organisations and employers.

There have been a number of cases recently where individuals, either acting as part of an organisation or on their own, have been the subject of court action after being involved in a strike.

FWBC has created a flyer to educate building and construction workers of their rights and responsibilities around taking strike action. This flyer is a useful tool and can be found on our website,

Anyone who has doubts about participating in strike activity can contact our hotline on 1800 003 338 for advice.

We welcome your direct feedback or ideas for topics which affect you in the construction industry.

If you have any suggestions, please send them to us via the contact details below
