No, not at all!

Some employers will try to scare workers into opposing unionization with strike talk.  In reality, strikes are extremely rare.  We settle over 99% of our contract negotiations without our members even voting on whether to strike.  That's right -- the only way there can ever be a strike is if you, the members working there, vote for one.  Under our Union Constitution, OPEIU union leaders can’t “call a strike” nor can union members from other workplaces.  Only the employees where you work can make that decision.
