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”

What are strike replacements?
Strike replacement workers are people who are employed to replace union workers on strike or locked out during a labor dispute. Replacement workers are usually temporary and are used to keep the business running until the dispute is resolved. Replacement workers are typically non-union employees. In some cases, replacement workers may even be brought in from other states.
The worst-case scenario for any business is facing a strike, leading to costly downtime and losses.

Can companies permanently replace striking workers?
The right of an employer to permanently replace workers who engage in an economic strike is governed by federal law and the Supreme Court’s interpretation of that law. In general, an employer may lawfully seek to have permanent replacements fill the positions of workers who engage in an economic strike. However, there are some circumstances under which this right may be limited.
What is a strike contingency plan?
A strike contingency plan is a process for ensuring business continuity if your employees decide to strike. The first step is to identify which employees are essential to your business. This may include managers, sales staff, customer service representatives, and other key personnel. Once you have identified these employees, you will need to develop a plan to keep your business running in their absence. This may involve hiring temporary staff or outsourcing critical functions. The most important thing is to ensure that your customers continue to receive the level of service they expect, even in the event of a strike. We can help you devise a plan, so you can protect your business from the potentially devastating effects of a work stoppage.
