earlier in the year i refused to cross the picket line of another union which was on strike, had a spot of money deducted from my pay, and thought no more about it. until yesterday when i saw another deduction from my wages, which i was told was due to an unauthorised absence and investigation revealed to be the day of the strike. management told staff that people taking action would see a 1/260 deduction from wages; i have had 1/130 deducted. you can see how this might deter people who aren't in a union from supporting action, and i'm fuming about it. and waiting to hear back from hr.
