During a labor dispute, your organization might face increased threats that could jeopardize your operations and employees. Our comprehensive security assessment includes the following:

  • Evaluating access points for entering and exiting your facility.
  • Identifying potential vulnerabilities within your premises and the immediate vicinity.
  • Crafting a strategic plan ensures that only authorized personnel and clients gain entry.
  • Educating your non-union staff on protocols for interacting with striking union members and navigating picket lines safely.
  • Coordinating with your management team and relevant local and state emergency services to establish adequate security measures in anticipation of a strike.
  • Outlining methods for meticulously documenting inappropriate behavior or breaches during a labor dispute.
Plan Ahead for a Potential Strike
A strike can have devastating consequences for a business. Even a brief shutdown can lead to significant losses in revenue and market share. That’s why it’s crucial to have a comprehensive plan in place to deal with the potential of a strike, including both staffing and security measures. Quickly ramping up production with temporary replacement workers is essential for keeping your business running smoothly, but ensuring their safety and maintaining order at your facilities are equally important.

Client Testimonials

Senior Director of North American Operations, Fortune 500

“Our warehouse employees and drivers in St. Louis walked off the job after their contract expired and we were unable to come to an agreement with them on a new contract. For the first two weeks of the strike, we utilized salaried people to drive our trucks, but we knew that this wasn’t sustainable for a long period of time.

Subsequently, a call was placed to RSS Inc. and within 3 days you had drivers on-site ready to start delivering our products. Your drivers were professional and courteous people who helped make sure our customers were satisfied during the 6 additional weeks our employees were on strike.

I highly recommend RSS Inc. to any company in need of personnel”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is strike security?
Strike security refers to the specialized services and measures implemented to protect a company’s assets, personnel, and operations during a labor strike. This type of security is critical because strikes can sometimes lead to heightened emotions, disputes, and potentially disruptive or harmful activities at or near the workplace. Here’s an overview of what strike security typically involves:

  • Personnel Protection: Ensuring the safety of non-striking workers who need to cross picket lines, management, and replacement workers. This can include escort services or providing secure transportation to and from the workplace.
  • Asset Protection: Safeguarding the physical assets of a company, such as buildings, equipment, and stock. This can involve increased surveillance, patrolling of the premises, and implementing access controls to prevent sabotage or theft.
  • Picket Line Management: Managing interactions at picket lines to keep them peaceful and ensuring that any protest remains lawful. This includes monitoring behavior, de-escalating potential conflicts, and ensuring that both strikers’ and workers’ rights are respected.
  • Crisis Management and Contingency Planning: Developing and implementing strategies to deal with unexpected situations during a strike, such as increased hostility, illegal activities, or other crises that could impact business continuity.
  • Communication Facilitation: Assisting in maintaining open lines of communication between the company management, the striking workers, and possibly law enforcement agencies to help resolve the strike amicably.

What does a strike security officer do?
Strike security officers are responsible for ensuring the safety of employees, protecting the company’s assets, and maintaining peace at picket lines.

What should be considered when hiring a strike security agency?
When hiring a strike security agency, it’s important to consider the firm’s experience with labor disputes, the training of their personnel, their understanding of local laws and regulations, and their approach to conflict resolution and crisis management.
