Negotiate to Settle, prepare to strike
Although the last thing any of us wants is a strike, we must be prepared for one.
That means we need a Strike Committee and Picket Captains to take the lead in the preparations.
The Strike Committee is an ad hoc committee that is responsible for all strike logistics, from maintaining a strike headquarters to organizing daily pickets, coordinating with the bargaining committee and communications committee, and much more.
Picket Captains are in charge of designated picket lines, signing in picketers, reporting on attendance to the Strike Committee and facilitating and in some cases initiating morale-maintaining activities on the line.
If you are interested in becoming a Picket Captain or serving on the Strike Committee, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
