Solidarity with the tube strikers
As it's the day of protest about local government pay (see last post) I probably won't find time to blog again before the tube strike starts this evening.
Above is a link to the locations of RMT picket lines tomorrow and Thursday. All trade unionists should visit to show support to members of the RMT and TSSA unions striking in defence of staffed ticket offices on the tube - and the thousand jobs put at risk by their planned closure.
Those readers living or working in London in will be familiar with the demonisation of tube workers generally, the RMT particularly (and their General Secretary personally). The rest of the trade union movement should show our support with vigour to match the venom spat by our opponents.
