Strikes always occur at the end of the year.

If a strike is 21 days long, workers would picket during the last three weeks in December.

If you have inventory on hand during the strike, sales continue. R&D projects also continue.


Tactics l.jpg
Tactics

  • Your company will need to determine which negotiation tactics best serves your purposes.

  • Companies with low automation will want to control labor costs. They would offer the lowest acceptable wage, which is 80% of the current contract and eliminate all benefits.

  • Companies with high automation might choose to be extremely generous with their workers, which will impose higher costs on their competitors (Remember, Labor looks at all offers and makes the highest offer part of their demand).
