27TH JUNE WOULD BE A GOOD DAY FOR STRIKE. BROWN WANTS TO HIT THE GROUND RUNNING. NOTHING BETTER THAN A STRIKE TO SLOW HIM DOWN. HAD PEOPLE SELLING THE SOCIALIST WORKER OUTSIDE MY OFFICE ON WEDNESDAY. THEY RECKON ALL PUBLIC SERVICE UNIONS WILL ORGANISE 1 MASS DAYS STRIKE.

there's an entire thread devoted to this very question on here somewhere ( I know they can be dificult to find now with so many here ) and the answer I got from that thread is ; If you are on your rest day, annual leave, special leave or sick leave then you are not on strike so therefore yes you still get paid.
As for joining the picket line, generally speaking everyone is welcome and appreciated. There is a police guideline that any more than 6 on a picket line can be regarded as a public nuisance but as long as you keep out of the general publics way and behave in a civilised manor you'll be left alone.
