There's the message of support to today's Higher Education strike from our General Secretary.
I hope many other activists in local government, health and our other service groups are also on the way to support picket lines.
Workers in this country are in the midst of the longest sustained fall in real wages in living memory (although a small number of senior employees in the public and private sectors are doing rather nicely).
There's no automatic law that says that if capitalism can drag itself to a better place economically then any benefits will be shared with workers.
We need our trade unions to mobilise us to fight for better pay - and today's unprecedented united action by the three major Higher Education unions is an important moment in building that fight.
