When there’s a possibility of a strike at your organization, time is of the essence. That’s why it’s critical to prioritize and implement a security plan as soon as possible.

What Is Labor Strike Security?

Labor strike security is crucial to protecting an organization’s buildings, products, and employees before and during a strike. Security officers who specialize in handling labor disputes are ideal for these situations; they understand the potential threats and risks and can help collect evidence in compliance with the National Labor Relations Act.

As a strike security company, DK Security works tirelessly to properly assess the threats and risks to your organization and take appropriate action. We start with a strike security analysis, which helps us develop a pre-strike management plan that best suits your needs. Once a strike begins, our security guards assist your leadership teams with carrying out a comprehensive security plan. 


The planning process ahead of a projected labor strike begins with submitting a security request. At DK, we are as proactive as possible; our leadership team will work to provide you with a strike security analysis and start pre-strike planning. Our tailor-made security plans involve coordinating a relationship with law enforcement and planning the safe continuity of business during a strike.


Once a strike plan is finalized, DK assists clients with preparing staff for working through a labor dispute event. Proper procedures for collecting and logging evidence are explained, employees are instructed on how to safely pass through a picket line, and further education is given on picketers — what’s legal vs. what isn’t.

Your facilities are also at risk of destruction and damage during a strike and are important to safeguard during any labor dispute. DK will review your building’s entry and exit areas to determine points of vulnerability as part of our pre-strike assessment. Developing a plan to ensure only authorized employees and customers may enter your buildings is yet another way we can assist your strike preparations.
