When an employer locks out its employees, it is to raise their anxiety levels and force them to agree to its agenda and when employees go on strike, it is to the same ends. This stress is sometimes necessary to drive the negotiations process. Between these two extremes, a happy medium is usually arrived at.
When governments dictate conditions, such as who is essential, it takes away from the equality of the process and amounts to collective begging on behalf of the employees. This is a violation of the very principle of free enterprise where each party is free to act in their own best interests.
