Replacement Workers During Strikes

I have a question.

In the US there are a series of laws to protect unions and the right to unionize, hold fair elections etc. Unions can also strike with some limited exceptions.

When they strike an employer can replace them IF he can find a replacement on the SAME offered terms the strikers rejected.

I'm having trouble understanding or finding a link to the laws in the UK that apply to the British Airways situation.

I'd love if someone had some pretty specific details. For example, are replacement workers temporary or can they be permanent replacements (in the US it is permanent) or is it against the law to replace workers AT ALL.

What are the factors that make hiring replacement workers so difficult in the UK?

The more detailed the better. I'm familiar with some of the non legal issues (union solidarity can play a big role in US strikes if the strike has broad company support), but curious about the UK / BA situation.

Many thanks.
