Excellent !

Shows what can be done with a strong union. Why are so many British workers scared of unions? No wonder the Tories don't like unions.

L'union fait la force ....

It's all about togetherness, solidarity. The blue collar worker as lots of scabs.

2%

It's never as simple as black and white when people strike. Those effected loathe the strikers yet, when their own boss takes advantage of them, they wish people would support them. On the other hand, if unions abuse their power, we get unreasonable wage demands. IMO bosses(the government) are abusing workers like our nurses, I think they should all hand in their notice or go on strike.
