A: The right to unionize is an economic and labor right while the right to association in general is a civil‐political right. Q: What constitutes freedom of association? A: Freedom of association includes the freedom not to associate, or, if one is already a member, to disaffiliate from the association Q: Is the right to strike included in the right to form unions or freedom of assembly by government employees? A: No, the right to strike is not included. Their employment is governed by law. It is the Congress and administrative agencies which dictate the terms and conditions of their employment. The same is fixed by law and circulars and thus not subject to any collective bargaining agreement.

(SSS Employees Association v. CA, GR. No. 85279, July 28, 1989) The only available remedy for them is to lobby for better terms of employment with Congress. m. EMINENT DOMAIN 1.
