Does anyone have any verdicts from the Ulamah with regard to the permissibility of belonging to a workplace trade union? This membership involves participating in industrial action, such as strikes, where refusing to work is undertaken on a number of days and sometimes in concession.
It just seems that this type of activity is a form of rebellion against the employer. In the past when there have been strikes, the union themselves notified their members, that if they should partake in the strike action, they will in fact be breaching their employment contracts. Jazakamullah Khairan.
