Wildcat strike is a strike called by workers without approval of the union leadership. It is particularly effective in key industries and segments of the economy which depend on timeliness: transportation. Communication, education, agriculture. It could also be used to disrupt oppressive governments.
New York City teachers in a Queens high school called a wildcat strike today when it was revealed their administrator sexually harassed several female teachers and was never reprimanded or fired.
