Thursday's Strike.

Recommended Posts

Talking theoretical % loss etc doesn't really tell me a lot about their situation, they may have been overpaid! underpaid or even average paid! It appears that it's not roll-back but almost a freeze! or am I missing something?

On the subject of Unions and Strikes, I've been working overseas for years now and had almost forgotten the effect on people strikes have. That was until I moved to Perth, West Australia in 2011 (to 2013) and discovered that many of the old hardened Union "Warriors" from the North East, Scotland and Liverpool had migrated there. Took me back to the 70's and 80's here where we worked and lived through the Miners Strikes and others - I was an apprentice at Blyth Power Station in the 70's and had to walk through the Picket lines every day as we were exempt from action.

Modern day Australia is a real throw back, several times the Unions had blockaded the gates to our work place and numerous marches through the City caused mayhem to traffic and pedestrians!
