Strike Vote

Strike Vote

A referendum by union members deciding whether or not to go on strike, which is a form of protest in which employees do not come to work. An affirmative strike vote authorizes union leadership to give strike notice and to take other steps necessary for the strike to occur. A strike vote is always on a secret ballot.
