Are there any instances where you believe that striking is the correct action to take?

But, the lack of economic growth throughout the time of our Socialist Government, and a policy of low interest rates so Mr Brown could borrow more virtually wrecked pensions and investments for everyone.

Why should these workers be any different ?

Everyone who had a private pension is in the same canoe today.

What should you do DB, negotiate ! not kill negotiations before they start with threats of strikes !

I accept there are not to many of the Militant Union Bald Bully Boys with sufficient grey matter upstairs to hold there concentration long enough for negotiations, maybe offer to have a pagger instead..

This relates to pensions pre 2008 that were frozen at that time before the current scheme started. They now want to scrap that agreement by repealing a act of parliament and nick £600m that has already been paid in. The pot isnt in deficit as far as i know so im sure youll forgive people for being a little bit pissed off about it. I will pass on your sound advice though and tell them to negotiate first.

Unions are there to stop unscrupulous employers from taking the piss, and to be fair they are lucky it is only a strike that will happen because when you rob loads of people blind then violence is the first thing that comes into their minds I can imagine.

You may need to look up what Socialism is if you think New Labour were Socialist. Blair and Brown = Tory-Lite.

To be fair i dont know anyone who wants to go on strike however last time the site went on strike the company backed down. Problem with this is it isnt the company thats the problem.

To strike you need hearts and minds to support you. Sadly the Unions were irreparably damaged by those communist idiots in the 70's, they killed Unionism until at least a generation has died out.

The skinhead bullyboys of the RMT are clones of the 70's idiots, exploiting a monopoly, sadly they are undermining other Unions, so who gets the headlines !!

Quote from a Junior Doctor

'As walkouts, on-off negotiations and the war of words rolled on, opinion polls showed the medics were winning the battle for hearts and minds, even when they escalated their action to include withdrawal of cover from areas of life-or-death care, such as A&E and maternity units.

“The RMT give the impression that they don’t care [about the impact the rail strikes by their members has on the public], and people think they are being selfish and not handling things right,” Masood says. “But as junior doctors we felt that our motivation was really pure. We were genuinely concerned about the wellbeing of the NHS and genuinely believed that what we were doing was to protect it. '

Biggest mistake junior doctors made was just not calling out just those who work in And E for 48 hours every weekend and everyone else refusing to cover for them

Would of been over in a month when the govmt realised how much it would cost and how hard it would be to cover for them

Tube strike: London rush-hour travel hit by industrial action

Could someone please justify this action, even the Socialist mayor is trying to talk sense: He said: "I think the best way to resolve differences is around a table, talking amicably. I think those who work on our underground do have a point about ticket office closures being premature and rushed through

Could someone please explain to us mere mortals what this industrial action is achieving........

I.d of thought that was pretty obvious the re reinstatement of the [censored] ticket offices only in Britain could you have a major transport network who think its a good idea to close down all their sales points and have you buy your tickets and cards from the local kebab shop instead.

'Mr Khan said: "This strike is going to be a huge inconvenience to commuters, tourists and TfL staff, and it is pointless.

"There is a good deal sitting on the table that will ensure station safety and staffing levels across the Tube network. I am willing to carry on negotiations.

"This historic dispute has nothing to do with the millions of Londoners this strike is punishing. It must be called off."

Southern Railway train drivers are set to strike too.
Aslef, the drivers' union, says there will be three 24-hour walkouts as the bitter dispute over driver-only trains rumbles on.
There will be no Southern services during the strikes next Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Three further strikes are planned later in the month.


Just a bunch of lazy left wing militant bully boy bouncers who will strike because they have a monopoly. Where are the moderate Unionists ? You should be standing up and telling your comrades to stop wrecking Unionism for personal self gain, it is you who are losing out !!

I'm not defending anyone or condemning them as I don't know enough about it. What I do know is from my experience no one goes on strike just for a extra day off. Khan really needs to get them round the table and sort it out. Prob is I think May has put a lot of hard nosed ministers in place who don't want to show perceived weakness in a lot of key departments.

It is hardly like anyone gives a toss though is it regarding the strike unless you are unfortunate enough to have to live in London.

Because nobody can drive anywhere in London then they rely on these people and they know it and they keep the said people in their massively paid jobs so stop being tight arses and pay the staff what they are due and up their money and stop moaning then this stuff wouldn't happen.

I once had a boss in the non too distant past who when I was disgruntled about having to 'cover' for other jobs in the workplace which included stuff like engineering roles etc, wasn't the fact that they were on three times the wage of me more like I could have had my hand chopped off with this machinery I wasn't trained on, he took me into the office and told me that he used to play football non league level and said that his manager once asked him what position he played in, he said midfield and the manager said wrong answer, you play whatever position that I say that you play.

Anyhow, I brought the Union in and he looked a proper twa t and he went so red in the face when the story was recalled to the Union and H&S because they were all laughing at him that - I still refer to him as Captain Redface.

Hello if you are reading this Captain Redface, you know who you are :)

Well I think any reasonable Union member is appalled by the attitude and industrial action and striking calls by the RMT, any reasonable human being would be !!

CCU, you have excelled yourself here, do you expect anyone to believe that article you attached. If that were the case, the Bully Boys would have them out striking - human rights infringements -slave labour - European court of human rights - what a load of old codswallop !!

Passenger safety Ppphtt, they do not give tuppence for anyone or anything other than themselves that is without doubt !!

They are killing Unionism, and everyone is standing back allowing it to happen..........

Which strike, if you mean the RMT strike, I don't believe 0.063% support it.....................Which person with an ounce of grey matter could support anything motivated by Militant Republican Bully Boys who only have one agenda.

It appears that the Socialists are resigned to the fact that they are unlikely to be in power anytime soon, so they'll just f..k it for everyone else !!

TSO has never sided with workers seeking better conditions or opposing negative changes. He has a default position, refusing to consider the possibility that some of these strikes are justified.

His indoctrination leads to his overuse of the terms 'militant' and 'socialist', and his utter failure to take an objective, balanced viewpoint on each individual case leads to his predictable, generic outbursts.

Other than that, he seems OK.

Other than that, he seems OK.


He's just a right wing bully boy capitalist [censored], or something like that.

The working conditions of the bloke on the shop floor is falling way behind top management who are awarding themselves ridiculous pay increases.

The best way to get pay rises would be to restrict the top earner in the company to 20 times the basic pay of the lowest paid full time employee.
Bonuses should also be restricted to a maximum bonus of one years pay each year which should also include share options.

Then just watch how companies would suddenly be able to afford pay rises for everyone without the need for protracted negotiations and strikes.

I agree, the problem is no one will take up the agenda, gain Union support (en mass) and set an objective of achieving this type of pay agreement.

The ones who strike are the most feather bedded, and generally where a Monopoly exists (Tube and Train Drivers, Junior Doctors, Teachers,) we are seeing less from the postal workers since they all got some boucoup shares FOC !

The lady at the top of the TUC has all the sound-bites, however she is probably obsessed with preparing the NHS agenda as the next battle-ground.

Get rid of the bald bully boys and get some people who can read, write and count, and who knows what could be achieved.

I am very happy to sign and support workers who are having it tough, but before I do I want to know more.

What is the average pay of those affected ?

What are the perks of the job ?

What is the holiday entitlement ?

Any death in service benefits ?

Or any other information you are willing to provide....

Sign it if you want I'm not begging anyone. The job pays a decent wage and we get holidays so we may not fit into the category your looking for.

Well, you need as many signatures as possible because your not going to get to 100,000....

So a polite ' we'll look into it ' by some nondescript secretary from the Government is the best you can expect........

...and it's a long time until July,when most will be on summer holidays with no appetite to go out on strike........

Its some organisation if you are expecting deaths in service. Normally this comes out of the pension provisions for those who die away from work and not the company

Maybe if your in a Union, other than that, death in service cover is fairly common and provided by many employers.
