Learn More at Strike School

Article Published on March 24, 2023

Our contract expires at the end of June, and we’re literally weeks away from bargaining with the State. Our team will be working hard to fulfill the priorities of the members, and we’ll all need to support our negotiation efforts with actions in the workplace … and perhaps more.

Can Local 1000 strike? In certain circumstances, yes. Despite a “no-strike” clause in our contract, we have the right to strike, under the right conditions.

Confused? Join us for Strike School!
