Labour Disputes to Become More Aggressive and Radical?
A recent article written by union activists and the Occupy Movement reviewed the outcome of some high profile strikes in Canada in the past few years. The overall theme is that organized labour needs to become more aggressive and radical. Plant occupations, storming of government buildings, and targeting business and political leaders are just a few of the suggestions being made. What does this mean from a security prospective? Is this a return of days gone by? Management will need to build robust contingency plans to mitigate the potential risks of these new tactics. Not only will security need to be considered, but crisis communication will also become a very important facet of any future contingency plan.
