Main article: Strike Busting (Arc)

This event arc follows through a missing strike leader.

Disappeared[ | ]

An overseer asks to talk to you in private. After making sure nobody can hear you, he confesses to killing the missing strike leader. "It went down like this. I and some friends grab this guy, just to have a little talk, make him see reason. He won't listen, starts a fight, slips, smashes his stupid noggin on a kerb. Oh bother. We buried him in freshly poured concrete under the generator. With your blessing, I hope."

You will have the following options:

  • Punish the overseers: Discontent will rise.
  • Commend the overseers: Strike risk will fall permanently. Workers may 'disappear' from time to time.

Notes[ | ]

  • After a few uses, workers will be more prepared, offering more resistance and causing many more injuries during any strike busting attempt.
  • There is a small chance of a worker dying when breaking a strike.
