This essay considers Wedderburn’s scepticism about EU law, in particular with regard to the right to strike after the rulings of the Court of Justice of the EU in the "Viking quartet". The same scepticism is also highlighted with reference to the European Convention on Human Rights (and in particular to Art. 11, on freedom of association). Finally, the author emphasizes Wedderburn’s cautious approach towards litigation on collective rights.
