Strike Benefits

Health insurance and other employee benefits provided by a union to members while they are on strike. In a strike, union members do not come to work as a form of protest. However, this deprives them of the wages and benefits they otherwise would have received, which increases the likelihood that people will go back to work prematurely and the strike will fail. Strike benefits help reduce this risk. See also: Strike pay.
