Saw this on Liam's blog...apres deluge, we need to working in practical ways to support resistance to cuts and privatisation and the general assault on society by the Brownites.
Support Bolton School Strike
A school in Bolton is taking strike action after the council announced its planned closure as part of an academy program. 94% of members voted for Yes to discontinuous strike action against the change of employer. The first day of strike action is this Thursday 8th May. Rush messages of support to the Withins staff firstname.lastname@example.org
Phil Roberts, the union rep, said: “This strike shows the strength of feeling and will hopefully send a message to the local authority that we want to stay with that employer.”
The ballot is for discontinious action and there is a strong determination amongst members to take whatever action necessary to win on this. This is obviously a very imnportant fight and deserves the support of union activists up and down the country. It is yet another sign that members in schools are prepared to take militant action in defence of wages, conditions and education. Victory to the Bolton strike!
Please make sure you get your local union branch and workplace branch to send messages of support as well as sending resolutions demanding an immediate ballot for further ongoing strike action against the pay cuts.
