I’m not sure if striking will be enough to get out of this seemingly intractable situation we’re facing but I guess it can’t hurt.
Via The Telegraph:
Unite, Britain’s biggest union, is understood to be leading calls for a super-strike in protest against the Government cuts.
A document drawn up by the union described a general strike as “desirable”, according to the Financial Times.
The newspaper reported that Unite believes: “It would be a landmark in our movement’s recovery of its morale, strength and capacity to play a leading part in a society crying out for credible and honourable leadership.”
However, other less radical unions would be likely to oppose the idea.
The idea of a general strike was proposed at the Trade Unions Congress last year by the Prison Officers Association.
