My employer is insinuating that my fixed-term employment will not be continued if I participate in the strike. Is that correct?

Of course not.  Industrial action is always a matter between the union and the employer. The union is responsible for the situation that arises on behalf of its members in relation to the employer. If it is not possible to discuss the strike in an appropriate manner in your workplace, it is enough for you to say that the strike is the union’s decision. As a member, you have the obligation to abide by the decisions that have been made without it resulting in any consequences for you.

All inappropriate behaviour is to be condemned. Contact your shop steward or regional office if you experience threats.
