East Coast Grocery Chain

Strom assisted in planning for a large scale distribution operation anticipating a labor dispute. Strom helped with all facets of operations including a review of logistics, security, and staffing.

Prior to engaging Strom, this client had unsuccessfully attempted to develop a number of strike contingency plans. This client credits Strom as the differentiating factor in this project’s success.


When one of the nation’s largest truck manufacturers was recently threatened with a strike, Strom not only provided manufacturing personnel at plants during the labor disruption, but also secured, staffed, and operated multiple cross-docks across North America to handle the load from our client’s picketed parts distribution centers. Customers continued to be seamlessly supplied with spare parts, and operations continued to receive inventory due to Strom’s complete knowledge of handling logistics during a labor disruption. About 75% of our clients utilize our cross-dock planning and operations.


Strom helped a large news and media company to plan and execute a contingency plan, including deployment of maintenance and production workers. The resulting short strike caused little to no business disruption, causing the union to accept concessions within two weeks.

Power Company

Strom provided guidance on all aspects of client’s contingency plan that helped them leverage it’s position and negotiate a fair and reasonable contract. Strom’s experience in providing power generation and distribution personnel in previous strike situations enabled our client to negotiate with increased confidence.
