Labor Unions

Most strikes are undertaken by labor unions during collective bargaining with an employer. According to News Media Guild, 98% of union contracts in the United States are settling each year without a strike. Workers decide to strike without the approval of a labor union, either because the union refuses to support such a tactic, or because the workers concerned are not unionized. Strikes are often described as unofficial strikes, without union authorization are also known as wildcat strikes.
