Effective strike contingency planning can help save millions of dollars in delayed production and delivery, decrease risk to company assets and personnel, and prevent lawsuits and National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) violations.
The efficiency of your operations depends on your most important asset — people. The dedication, productivity, and satisfaction of your labor pool are all reflected in their output and your success. But sometimes, for reasons often outside of your control, labor relations can head south. And when things go awry on the ground, your business is impacted from the ground up.
Effective strike and labor unrest contingency planning can help save millions of dollars in delayed production and delivery, decrease risk to company assets and personnel, and prevent lawsuits and National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) violations. Our experienced Asset Protection Team provides services that minimize risk and disruption to your operations during labor unrest. With experience providing service throughout thousands of strikes, our Asset Protection Team can provide expert security consultation and planning, establish an effective deterrent to wrongdoing through sufficient security posting, and document or capture evidence of lawlessness or misconduct to facilitate injunctive relief.
Whether detailed strike planning is in place or there is a surprise work stoppage, our Asset Protection Team is prepared to step in with well-trained, accountable personnel to support continued operations throughout a labor unrest event.
We work closely with clients to create customized labor unrest and strike security programs featuring a variety of elements:
Strike security presents specific challenges not faced by a company’s typical daily guard force. Every strike security officer must act in accordance with labor strike guidelines established by the NLRB and local and federal laws. Our Asset Protection Team officers have the training, experience, and discipline to endure tense, emotionally charged conditions with sensitivity and focus. Asset Protection Team officers participate in a comprehensive training program that includes a 48-hour, strike-specific curriculum. This extensive training is combined with supervision by a staff of more than 30 supervisors with 10–20 years of strike experience, to provide unparalleled client support and leadership. Our entire workforce of strike security personnel can be mobilized in 24 to 72 hours. We deliver the experience and resources you need, when you need them.
To further assist our clients through periods of labor unrest, U.S. Security Associates can provide executive protection, temporary labor, logistics or food service, investigative assistance, and legal guidance through our complementary service lines and partnerships.
