What’s At Risk During A Strike?

When unions take nurses from the bedside to the picket line, it generally leads to:

  • In an economic strike, strikers may be permanently replaced: The striker will go on a preferential recall list, but a replacement worker has no obligation to give up the job when the strike is over.
  • Striking team members may have to pay the entire premium cost of their insurance benefits (plus an administrative fee)
  • Employers do not pay striking team members
  • Striking team members may not be eligible for unemployment benefits
