Default RMT rail workers strike

Do you support it? Obviously I do, I see the government's latest plan to oppress us is to get rid of the law where you can't bring in agency workers to scab.

Holding the country to ransom for an extra few quid. Genius. The hypocrisy is on another scale.

They tried negotiation...it failed

Held a legal ballot and the union membership voted for strike action...all perfectly legal

This bunch of Eton c***s will now look to rush through new legislation that further erodes union rights

Good luck to the rail workers

How's it hypocritical going on strike for a fair pay rise?

As a strong supporter of my own union who are negotiating for a reasonable pay increase I find complaints that industrial action is inconvenient to be rather missing the point.

No wonder trains are so shit in this country.

Lack of investment, overpriced, pretty unreliable in some parts and workers that canít be arsed turning up to work.

Should just make bus lanes everywhere. Bus drivers donít hold themselves in such high esteem do they?

been in a union in every place i've worked.

Been on strike about 6 times in my life. Twice at the BBC and the other 4 times was at Royal Mail. You lose a day's pay so nobody is doing it for the fun of it. But it was necessary to protect jobs and conditions.

The rail workers have my full support.

I agree with everything Ash Sarkar says

Far too many arse-lickers & turncoats on here.

Piss & moan about workers taking industrial action when it inconveniences them personally but when they get shat on by their bosses, they're f***ing screaming about how unfair it is & something should be done about it.
f***ing hypocrites.

Been in a union since I was legally allowed (since the late 80ís), USDAW back then, PCS these days. Been on many strikes and as many picket lines. Rule changes have made it harder and harder to strike of course these days so if it happens then itís always for something worthwhile. Those against it - Thatchers children and f*** them.

you are ignorant and abusive - I am a kind and thoughtful person.

strikes invariably hit the wrong target. this one is like threatening to burn your kid's arm with your cigar because your wife won't give you a blow job. there will be nurses who can't get work who would gladly swap salaries with a button pusher. f*** them, though. as long as you are right on and the tories are evil, you can blame them for any deaths.

if negotiation / mediation fails, there should be public votes, not union votes.

and yes... I've been in a union and been to union meetings. I am well aware of what goes on and how little sense it makes. they don't care. pretty much the only thing they're good for is convincing f***wits that they do.
