National interest limits exercise of right to engage in concerted activities

Article 263 of the Labor Code speaks of the right of workers to engage in concerted activities for their mutual benefit and protection. Concerted activities, like the holding of a strike, are resorted to by employees in their effort to obtain more favorable terms and conditions of work for themselves. Due to its importance, the exercise of such right is limited only by the demands of national interest under paragraph (g) of said article. (G.R. No. 120751; March 17, 1999)
