What does a picketer do and who can become a picketer?

A picketer is a person monitoring that the strike is implemented.

Picketers’ task is to encourage all those wishing to perform work that is within the scope of the strike to leave the workplace. Picketers maintain order in front of the workplace on strike, distribute strike bulletins, and monitor employers’ actions.

Dependable and calm persons who do not lose their patience even in tough situations are selected as picketers. Picketers represent the union and are therefore also strikers. They do not have the right to enter the workplace or work areas or to use the employer’s equipment.

If you want to be a picketer, contact your shop steward, the strike committee or a branch officer.
