Will the UK members of parliament strike?

Listening to the news today, I am struck by the contrast between the (UK) Post Office and the Houses of Parliament. The Post office strike is going ahead, yet in spite of drastic proposed changes to their terms and conditions of service, there is no sign of members of  either  the House of Commons or the House of Lords taking strike action. Clearly, they need a union. Actually, I wonder if anyone would notice if they did go on strike … yet I also see that there’s 13 candidates for the Glasgow North-east by-election, so perhaps they are in fear of losing their jobs.
