Picketing

Picketing- having employees carry signs announcing their concerns near the employer’s place of business, is one of the first activities to occur during a strike. Its purpose is to inform the public about the existence of the labor dispute and often to encourage others to refrain from doing business with the struck employer.


Picketing is the workers marching at a plant entrance to protest some management practice.


Picketing refers workers publicly air their complaints against an employer by staging a demonstration outside the building, with protest signs and explanatory leaflets.
