All legal problems arising from the strike must be handled directly by the General Strike Committee working with the UE National Office. Legal problems are generally of two types.
Companies commonly get court injunctions to stop some strike activity, usually mass picketing. Fighting an injunction means going to court (See Appendix A, “Court Injunctions”). After discussion with the National Office, the Committee will have to determine what it wants to do, given the circumstances.
The second legal problem — bailing out those arrested during the strike — is more complicated and is explained in Appendix B, “Bail in Strike Situations.” (Note: Appendix B is not online yet) Here, the Committee has to weigh several factors: the hardship to the strikers involved, the cost of the bail, the means to raise it, and the publicity that it generates.
