The efficiency of your operation depends on your most important asset — people. The dedication, productivity, and satisfaction of your labor pool are all reflected in their output and your success. But sometimes for reasons often outside of your control labor relations can go bad.
Effective strike and labor unrest contingency planning can help save millions of dollars in delayed production and delivery, decrease risk to company assets and personnel and prevent lawsuits from National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) violations. GISS International provides services that minimize risk and disruption to your operations during labor unrest. With experience providing service throughout thousands of strikes our team can provide expert security consultation and planning, establish an effective deterrent to wrong-doing through sufficient security posting and document or capture evidence of lawlessness or misconduct to facilitate injunctive relief.
Whether detailed strike planning is in place or there is a surprise work stoppage GISS is prepared to step in with well-trained, accountable personnel to support continued operations throughout a labor unrest event.
At GISS we work closely with clients to create customized labor unrest and strike security programs featuring a variety of elements:
• Business continuity planning
• Security staffing assessment
• Strike preparation guidelines
• Property condition documentation
• Evidence gathering and testimony
• Rapid response
Every GISS strike security officer must act in accordance with labor strike guidelines established by the NLRB and local and federal laws. Strike security presents specific challenges not faced by a company’s typical daily guard force. GISS officers have the training, experience, and discipline to endure tense, emotionally charged conditions with sensitivity and focus. GISS officers have extensive training combined with supervision by staff supervisors with many years of strike experience to provide unparalleled client support and leadership. Our entire workforce of strike security personnel can be mobilized immediately. We deliver the experience and resources you need, when you need them.
No one plans for a strike to happen. Employees don’t plan to be treated in a way that they believe to be unfair, nor do employers think ahead to when or how often their employees may see fit to strike. Because of this, security at picket lines, protests, and other strike events is often minimal at best.
Striking is not something that should be punished. It is an employee’s fundamental right to express their dissatisfaction and discord with their employer. However, strike situations can often lead to dangerous crowds, hostile conditions, and may even lead to injury or death. Preventing these catastrophes is what we do here at GISS International every day. Here’s how we can put our experience to work when your teammates or workers go on strike:
One of the best things about our strike security services is that we can respond quickly. Many employers or staff members are caught unprepared for a strike, leaving them vulnerable to property damage, personal injury, or worse. Our team can be on site quickly, to help you manage the strike situation before it becomes dangerous.
When employees strike, it is not unheard of for property damage and interpersonal violence to take place. Tensions are high, emotions are out of control, and this anger can lead to combustion when partnered with the physical effects of crowding and ill preparation. To prevent your business property from being damaged – or to take note of damages as they occur for legal purposes – our staff can provide the presence you need. Likewise, if unrest does occur, we can take note of disputes, involved parties, and damages to people or property to provide evidence in later court cases. When your staff is on strike, we’ve got you covered.
We don’t just offer our services to those who are witnessing their company’s staff go on strike. We are also a voice for those who are looking to achieve better labor relations through striking. If you and your coworkers believe you have a case for striking, contact us. We can help you plan a safe, peaceful protest event that respects both property and the people involved – and can help you move negotiations forward.
If you find yourself in need of strike security services in the New York or New Jersey area, contact us. We can provide you a quick estimate and service that can be on-site even quicker, to make sure your strike event is a safe and orderly as possible. No one expects a strike to happen, but when it does, you don’t have to leave the safety of yourself, your coworkers or your staff in jeopardy. Set up strike security and take one less worry off your mind.

Over the years, we have developed a good understanding of what is needed in the way of armed protection services for our clients and hope to keep providing those same services for many years to come.
The last thing you want to worry about is strike security services that aren’t reliable. That is why at GISS International, we have such strict background screenings. Our entire staff of armed security services undergoes criminal, credit and reference checks before we hire them. We also require drug testing. Not only must our security staff pass these checks, but they must also prove to be of good character, have good judgement and present themselves in a neat and professional manner. Our number one concern is the welfare of our clients, and we strive to make that happen with reliable, strong security.
