It is illegal to strike without a lengthy legal procedure in the UK ,Secondary strikes are also illegal .So the situation you allude to about UK pilots being sent to cover striking pilots in other jurisdictions is out-with the control of those on a UK contract .

Same rules apply in easyJet amongst other carriers .If you are rostered a flight and you don't turn up in sympathy for those on strike in that country then you are engaging in illegal industrial action and will in all likelihood be fired .

In some other UK countries it is illegal for the EMPLOYER to circumvent strikes in this way . UK law , years behind .
