Yes. Employees who embark on strike action forfeit the right to payment for the period they strike.
The only exemption is where the employees also receive payment in kind.
Examples of payment in kind are accommodation, food and basic amenities. Employers may not withhold payments in kind, even during Strike action.
The employer may recover the value of the payments in kind paid during strike action after the strike is over.
