Stardate not given: After Rom nearly dies from an ear infection due to Quark’s refusal to give him time off to seek medical attention, and when Quark announces a pay cut for his employees to make up for losses incurred during the Bajoran Time of Cleansing, Rom decides he has had enough of his brother’s heavy-handed management. He forms a union of all the bar and casino workers, to demand increased pay, shorter hours, and paid sick leave. When Quark laughs in their faces, the union promptly goes on strike. Meanwhile, Worf continues to have trouble adjusting to station life.
