Where is picketing allowed?

The right to picket conferred by the Trade Union and Labour Relations (Consolidation) Act 1992 is limited to picketing the pickets' employer. Picketing anywhere else is known as secondary picketing and is illegal. The "right" to picket is to attend "at or near" the pickets' workplace, which does not entitle them to do anything on their employer's property. If a picket works at a number of workplaces he or she may picket any of them. Workers who have been dismissed may picket their former workplace if they have not yet found another job.
