Dh is in unison and they are planning to strike but he seems to think that striking interrupts his continuity of service. He has just been given a permant job after being on temp contracts for 2 years. He will constantly be under the threat of redundancy though and if he is made redundant he would lose those two years.
Does that sound right? It doesn't sound very fair. Any advice?
"Although a strike breaks the contract of employment it does not break continuity of employment if the employee returns to work after the strike ends. A strike will, however, delay the attainment of any necessary qualifying period as the employee's starting date is regarded as being postponed by the actual number of days between the last working day before the strike and the day on which work resumes. "
