How should I respond to a picket line?

Am I allowed to march on the picket line in support of the NSGEU77 if they strike?

Can non-NSGEU77 employees take their vacations during a strike?

  • Yes, if scheduled with the agreement of your supervisor.

What should I do if I encounter a NSGEU77 member on university property (for example, in his/her office) during a strike?

  • It is not the responsibility of staff to confront NSGEU77 members who come onto campus during a strike. Be polite and respectfully decline to provide service. Contact your Dean or supervisor if you run into difficulties.

How would I handle a call from a NSGEU77 member asking for information or assistance?

  • Be polite. Record the request and the member’s name and contact information, and pass those along to the member’s Dean or to your Dean or supervisor.
