The provisions relating to voluntary and compulsory arbitration in the Republic of South Africa differ fundamentally from the law in the United Kingdom. It is suggested that the law of the Republic has this merit, namely, that it ensures that no strike or lock-out takes place in essential services where the public interest would clearly be prejudiced; nor in non-essential services before serious attempts at a settlement have been set in operation. In the United Kingdom strikes and lock-outs can take place legally at any time, at least once notice of termination has been given.
