What happens if a unionized employee works during a strike?

In Ontario, Canada, if the employees of a unionized workplace go on strike, what happens if a worker disobeys the union and works anyway?

What can the union do about it?

    Depends on the union in question.

    It depends upon the laws of the state. If the union is powerful, they can retaliate against the union member. Such as not let him work. If the union is not powerful, they can kick him out of the union. Which might be important or not. It use to be that such a person was called a "scab", and it was a bad situation. Even physical violence. In this case the workforce may be composed of both union and non-union workers, so the power of the union is weak.
