A "strike" means a mutually planned refusal by employees to work for a period of time for which they were employed to work, holds the Court of Appeal in Connex South Eastern Ltd v National Union of Rail, Maritime and Transport Workers 11.12.98 Court of Appeal. This formulation covers stoppages of work on particular days and for particular hours, and therefore encompassed an overtime and rest-day working ban called by the employees' trade union in the instant case.
