Myth: “Being in a union means I have to go on strikes”

Reality: This is utterly false. We all have a right, protected by federal labor law, to work if we want to. Opponents of unionization don’t want us to know this because they want to scare us by making us believe that a union can force us to go on strike. Furthermore, strikes are exceedingly rare; 98% percent of contracts are negotiated without the need for striking. No one here at Princeton wants a strike, so it’s very unlikely that would ever happen.
