Job Action Law and Legal Definition

A job action is a unified activity by employees aimed at putting pressure on the employer without resorting to a strike. Examples include: wearing logo T-shirts, buttons, or hats with union slogans, holding parking lot meetings, collective refusal of voluntary overtime, reporting to work in a group, petition signing, jamming phone lines, etc.

It is a short-term action by workers, for example, a slowdown, to achieve demands or protest policies. Doing only the minimum amount required by the rules of the workplace is an example of a job action.
