If I still worked in the public sector I'd be on strike today

Many, many years ago I worked for the local council. Worked very hard too, in a front-line service. There was a time, when we'd had our conditions and pay squeezed time and time again that I went on strike. For over four months. We didn't win the battle but I'd do it all again because we did it for all the right reasons. I just read this piece by Frances O'Grady in The Guardian and thought I'd share it with you. In solidarity.

  1. I couldn't agree more! Proud of my striking sister yesterday. Hopefully this is only the beginning of strong, dignified and unified action.
