A strike occurs when a group of employees or students refused to work because they had some complaint about the working conditions that their employer was apparently unwilling to correct. Such events were often organized by unions.
Types of strikeEdit
Student strikes were strikes organized by students, usually at an university level or otherwise higher learning institutions. Such strikes could have a set duration, after which it can be renewed, with the highest level being an unlimited general strike. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Rode the 300")
When the first strikes were declared, the students/employees on strike used pitchforks, pickaxes and torches to carry out their picketing duty, which were later replaced by picket signs and megaphones as technology evolved. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "The Defector")
Strikes in Star Trek fanonEdit
In 2012, Concordia University, Edouard Montpetit College, Laval University and the University of Montreal all had students on unlimited general strike, including the student members of the PHYSUM, to protest a proposed $1,625 tuition hike over 5 years in Quebec, alongside other colleges and universities.
Also, in 2401, universities all across Malachor V were on strike to protest a tuition hike that made tuition double, among which Aldanna University and Lagdou University. (Star Trek: The Stoneship Files: "Rode the 300", "The Defector")
