Definitions on the web:

Strike action, also called labour strike, on strike, or simply strike, is a work stoppage caused by the mass refusal of employees to work.

Strikes are sometimes used to put pressure on governments to change policies. Occasionally, strikes destabilise the rule of a particular political party or ruler. Some companies negotiate with the union during a strike; other companies may see a strike as an opportunity to eliminate the union. This is sometimes accomplished by the importation of replacement workers, strike-breakers or "scabs".
