I am greatful that unlike my ancestors in the 19th century http://www.tolpuddlemartyrs.org.uk/
I have not had to make the sort of sacrifices they made to enjoy things we now take for granted e.g. annual leave, national pay scales, health and safety, sick leave ........
On the few occasions I have had to take strike action there are one group of workers who by an act of solidarity have raised the morale on picket lines.........those are our Postal workers who refuse to cross our picket lines!
Tomorrow they are taking strike action for more details go to
Unless there is a change in policy in relation to Pay............local government, health workers could be joining them on picket lines in the autumn along with teacher unions and civil servants.
So if you pass a Postal workers picket don't walk by........stop and offer support
