Laid off Steelworkers ready to strike Alcoa…?

Something seems amiss here:

Workers at Alcoa’s idled Massena East plant said Wednesday they are willing to go on strike if the company cannot come up with an acceptable contract proposal by Monday.

If the plant is idled, that means all of the workers are on lay off, right?

So what good is a strike?
