Work-in

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A work-in is a form of direct action under which workers whose jobs are under threat resolve to remain in their place of employment and to continue producing, without pay. Their intention is usually to show that their place of work still has long-term viability or that it can be effectively self-managed by the workers.

Historical examples of the work-in include the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders work-in and the Harco Steel work-in, both in 1971.
