What does picketing involve?
Picket lines are primarily a means to communicate our grievances and to seek support for the strike. Picket lines are a way to build solidarity within the bargaining unit and with other supporters. Picketing involves attending a site at the entrance of campus to provide information and give visibility to YUFA’s demands. Your picket captain will give you directions on picketing procedure, and you should follow that direction. At all times, remain professional, courteous and non-confrontational. YUFA members have the right to walk the picket line, and the public has the right to cross it. Members can try to dissuade people from crossing the picket line by sharing information about why YUFA is on strike and what the issues at hand are. If there are any problems, the picket captain should be notified.
