Strike Contingency Plan

A strike contingency plan safeguards your business if there is a dispute.

Every business that employs people needs a strike contingency plan. A plan is vital for your business and all the stakeholders involved. Knowing that you’re ready for any situation increases your business partners’ and clients’ trust in your business. They know you can continue your business arrangements, no matter the outcome of negotiations with the trade union or union members.

How a Strike Contingency Plan Manages Labour Disputes

Many don’t realize that labour disputes often have early indicators, including the chance during collective bargaining, which is likely.

If picketing of striking workers does occur, you need strike security the most. A replacement worker crossing the picket line can result in labour violence. Careful planning can prevent these potential escalations if you cannot come to a collective agreement with the trade union.

Our building fire panel went down suddenly, and the repair took several weeks to complete. We hired Optimum because of their experience with vulnerable folks in the DTES. Every firewatch guard I met was calm, friendly and with a professional, courteous demeanour, which is exactly what we asked for, and what was best for this building. Every person in the office I dealt with was helpful, reasonable and professional. This should not be that unusual to find in companies, but it is. Really happy we decided on Optimum for this project.
