    Miles v Wakefield Metropolitan District Council [1987] IRLR 193 HL (0 other reports)

Workers who are on strike, or who, by way of industrial action, refuse to carry out their duties, are not entitled to be paid unless the employer accepts such work as is performed during industrial action as complete performance of the worker's duties. So holds the House of Lords in Miles v Wakefield Metropolitan District Council 12.3.87 House of Lords, rejecting Mr Miles' claim for wages in respect of a period of industrial action.
