Anti-Strikebreaker Law Law and Legal Definition

A strikebreaker is a person who works despite an ongoing strike. Strikebreakers are usually individuals who are not employed by the company prior to the trade union dispute, but rather hired prior to or during the strike to keep production or services going. The Anti-Strike breaker Law or the Byrnes Act of 1936 made it a felony to transport persons who were employed for using forceful tactics in labor disputes or collecting bargaining efforts.
