  • The common mechanism used in Canada is "work to rule", where every rule is taken to the limit in the favour of the employee and to the detriment of the employer. So, they stop work at closing time to the second regardless of whether some job is almost complete, take every minute allowed for lunch and breaks, and job specific actions, e.g. teachers stop running extra-curricular clubs or doing any paperwork other than marking and grading.
