Picket refers to a person or a group of people who assemble in front the entrance of the employers premises or other venue. It is an industrial action done by unionized workers as a protest. They are trying to persuade others such as co-workers, workers of other firms and customers from not entering the particular premise during a strike. Also, they are trying to persuade the customers from not conducting business with the premises. In a lawful way, picketing usually required the approval from union ballot (Business Dictionary, 2018). According to Aminuddin (2016), the most likely industrial action adopted by workers is picketing. The Industrial Relations Act 1967 Section 40 states that workers are allowed to present at, or near the workplace when they have a trade dispute. This is to ensure they spread information to the public and other workers in a peaceful condition. It also includes the action of persuading other workers not to work when a strike is occurring.
