The ban on strike action imposed on a police trade union did not infringe its freedom of association
In today’s Chamber judgment in the case of Junta Rectora Del Ertzainen Nazional Elkartasuna (ER.N.E.) v. Spain (application no. 45892/09), the European Court of Human Rights held, unanimously, that there had been:
No violation of Article 11 (freedom of association) of the European Convention on Human Rights, taken alone and in conjunction with Article 14 (prohibition of discrimination).
The case concerned the inability of the members of a police officers’ trade union to exercise the right to strike.
The Court found in particular that the more stringent requirements imposed on “law-enforcement agents”, on account of the fact that they were armed and of the need for them to provide an uninterrupted service, justified the ban on strike action in so far as public safety and the prevention of disorder were at stake.
The Court noted that the specific nature of these agents’ duties warranted granting the State a lot of room for manoeuvre (“a wide margin of appreciation”) to regulate certain aspects of the trade union’s activities in the public interest, without however depriving the union of the core content of its rights under Article 11.
