➤ Some Brothers and Sisters want us to strike. Won’t a strike get us the best package possible?

  • A strike can be a useful tool when used appropriately. We have gone on strike in this council in the past. However, when a solid wage and benefit package is on the table a strike is not an appropriate option.
  • There is no guarantee that we could gain much more from a strike. Portland’s EIS Carpenters struck for 18 days in 2007 and gained less than $0.10 on the ratified agreement.
