In the kingdom of Jordan, a crisis arose last year when the teachers' union was disbanded and some teachers were fired, disciplined or even arrested after negotiations with the government broke down. Recently, one official from the ministry of education while announcing the cancelling of some of these punishments declared that "الإضراب في كل الدساتير ممنوع", which roughly translates to "going on strike in all constitutions is prohibited" [he was talking about public school teachers and similar employees].
I don't think many nations mention in their constitutions anything about schoolteachers going on strike, so I interpret his statement as referring to the legal rather than the constitutional status of it.
The question is about the accuracy of this statement: Are there any jurisdictions in which public school teachers are:
- Clearly prohibited from going on strike
- Clearly allowed to go on strike
If you have definite knowledge, please provide examples for either one or both cases.
