The strike is one of the legal actions of workers to fight for their rights and interests when negotiations do not lead to any progress anymore. The Strike Act defines a strike as the organized interruption of work performed by workers for the purpose of exercising economic and social rights and interests related to work. Considering all legal rights, the strike does not form a violation of professional obligations or cannot cause the initiation of disciplinary or compensational procedures. Initially, the strike was not recognized for employees in civil services due to the special worker status, but lately also the public sector grants workers the right to strike, however applying a special legal regime of restrictions. In fact, the Strike Act and other special acts do not define public interest and do not draw a difference between civil services and essential services. The performance of minimum services is required practically by all special acts. The doctrine argues that the extend of workers affected by limitations of the right to strike is too wide. In international law, the right to strike is defined in many legal sources such as the convention of the ILO, acts of the EU Council or the UN. An examination of the sources of Slovenian legislation regarding the right to strike for workers in civil services shows that the rights significantly differentiate from international standards. In addition, the Strike Act is not in line with the Slovenian constitution and demands thorough reconstruction.
