Make sure the union clearly understands that you'll not tolerate any form of misconduct at all. And that you'll gladly be willing to discipline blatant misconduct, and even dismiss
such employees if necessary.
Such 'misconduct' includes any violence, destruction to property, vandalism, hate speech and intimidation to other employees (non-members)
Remind the union that these are criminal offences and that you'll report such behaviour directly to the police.
What's more, let the union know that should any of this behaviour manifest itself during the strike, they'll receive an interdict from the Labour Court.
At the end of the day, you must remind the union that they are responsible for their members' actions. And that if their members, in any way, make life difficult for non-members, you'll take action against them.
