Scab – this legal term applies to the Labor Law in some jurisdictions. It refers to the figure of a worker, hired on a labor contract, who refuses to become part of a professional union of workers. And respectively does not participate in their actions (strikes, petitions, etc.). Mostly this situation usually occurs in less developed countries where unions do not protect the rights of individual members. So scabs find it useless to join these unions or to pay their monthly or annual union membership fees.
