payrise strike?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
i work in a leisure centre and have a part time contract but i am not part of the union.
there is a strike on wednesday for a payrise and im not in the union therefore not obliged to strike. if i do strike i lose a days pay, however i have contracted set hours and i said i would do wednesday as overtime therefore im not obliged to actually work wednesday, even though i have already said i would.
if i do go into work i will be the only one not striking. all the staff that are on duty that day are striking therefore they will have to close the building anyway. some people at work are winding me up saying that if i dont strike that makes me a scab cos i will get a payrise anyway and its not fair.
so do i tell the shift manager that im not available to work on wednesday anyway, or just go into work and see what happens???
