My question would be, if they strike and hire scabs, would the actors cross the picket lines? I saw a lot of people that in the beginning wouldn't cross the lines when the California grocery clerks went on strike in 2003 (something that in the long run didn't work out too well for them). Originally I, as an individual with a father who was in a union didn't even cross but the minute the workers got nasty and violent, it was "the hell with you" and I started crossing.

But will the actors cross if the strike really happens? I know police and Disneyland security cannot strike and are compelled in their contracts to cross picket lines, but can they have that addendum in a soap actors contract? Do they generally?
