Cambridge Security utilizes a four-stage pre-strike preparation program:
STAGE 1 – PRE-STRIKE SURVEY
Pre-strike planning is essential in any potential labor dispute. Cambridge Security begins with a comprehensive in depth analysis of your facility and operational aspects of your company. We identify any high-risk areas at your facilities or any security deficiencies in company procedures and recommend solutions. The information gathered at this stage will help prevent sabotage and minimize vulnerabilities in those areas, which could hamper operations or result in injury to employees. Deterrence, prevention and business as usual are our credo and goal. Even if your company averts a labor dispute, these surveys are very useful.
STAGE 2 – CONTINGENCY PLANNING
We put all of the information gathered in stage 1, into a contingency plan customized to your particular needs. We review your contingency plan to ensure that you have considered all the relevant aspects in operating in a business as usual mode. We have been able to prevent major operational difficulties by identifying small oversights, which could prove to be a major problem during a work stoppage. If you do not have a contingency plan we will, at your request, create one for you.
STAGE 3 – LEGAL COUNSEL
Cambridge Security will work very closely with the legal representatives of your company. The involvement of labor attorneys in the pre-strike preparations is essential in minimizing your exposure to criminal as well as any possible labor related charges that may arise with the National Labor Relations Board (N.L.R.B.) we can provide specialty officers who have the ability to communicate with legal counsel and court officials to assist your attorneys in defending any action.
STAGE 4 – STRIKE SECURITY IMPLEMENTATION
The final stage and its implementation are entirely up to you, the client. Our professionally trained strike security officers are ready for deployment on your command. In certain scenarios, we recommend that you utilize strike security officers in those areas vulnerable to sabotage prior to the actual expiration of the contract. It is essential that we be in a position to begin immediate deployment in order to ensure continued operations and the safety of the employees and the facility. Therefore, if the security officers are not on the site, they should be positioned as close to your facility as possible.
