What is Strike Security? 

Strike security services are a critical component of securing your facilities and protecting employees prior to and during labor disputes. Strike Security Officers are specifically trained for labor dispute environments; they understand the risks and threats inherent in these situations and capture evidence in compliance with the National Labor Relations Act which is a company's best defense against false accusations and any incidents that occur.

  • Determining the vulnerable areas of your site and surrounding area
  • Developing a plan to ensure that only authorized employees and customers enter your facility
  • Instructing your non-union employees in protocols relating to contact with striking union members and procedures for passing through a picket line.
  • Participating in a meeting with your management, state, and local police departments, and/or fire departments to coordinate proper security procedures, should a strike take place.
