A strikebreaker (sometimes derogatorily called a scab, blackleg, or knobstick) is a person who works despite an ongoing strike. Wikipedia
There’s a lot of chatter on social media about whether or not union members can *choose* not to strike, and whether they would get paid for working on the strike day if they went to work.
I haven’t got a definitive answer yet, but how very sad that any union members would be actively trying to find ways to break a strike.
How astounding that anyone would be encouraging others to do so.
And how utterly unbelievable to be hunting down possible loopholes to get paid on a strike day.
Yes, it’s term 4, yes it’s report season, and yes, there are bills to pay, but it’s no small thing to cross a picket line (literally or figuratively) and work on a strike day.
Are we paddling this waka together? If not, why bother joining a union?
