A strike is an action carried out by the employees of a company, often on the initiative of one or more trade unions, and which leads to the cessation of all or part of the activity.
The strike is based on a social demand that may concern an improvement in working conditions or an increase in wages. It generally leads to a deduction of the striking employee’s salary.
The strike is a collective action and has a negative effect on the productivity of companies.
The strike is the source of disturbances in the production or marketing process, depending on its nature.
