Forgive me, I am but a newbie to this field. (And not too sure where to put this query, so going for somewhere that seems to attract a fair bit of sage wisdom.) I'm a cover supervisor- one of two in the school- who doesn't belong to a union. I've never witnessed a strike before- heard of them happening, sure- but know only that people refuse to work on principle. Would someone explain what happens please? Do teachers show to the school and not enter? Enter but not go to class? Stay at home? Go elsewhere to protest? Throw rocks at the "scabs"? (Last one is a joke, I swear!) I've heard rumours some school will close for the day- is this the desired effect or does it defeat the purpose? Will we be told in advance or will staff and students be turned from the doors? If school is in session, am I correct in assuming cover work won't have been set so I should be prepared for that eventuality? Other things I should know? Any anecdotes of past strikes? Etc, etc.
