I think it is important to politicise your children at a very early age.
It will also be a wonderful tale for them to tell when they get older.

The presence of children also makes the police less baton happy.

The members at your D.O. will fill you in on the details when you get back to work.
They already have a fair bit of experience in the strike department.

Well I wouldn't subscribe to having children involved at all - remember the old saying about the sins of the father being visited on the son.

But Loopy is female so that doesn't count.

Kids at a gate meeting or a picket line are a good thing in my mind. They tend to keep things light hearted and non-confrontational, also its a good educational experience for them.

Oh right of course it doesn't - the gender isn't important - the principle is. I have never been on a picket line when children have been present nor would I want to be.

Take him along, then when you get home tell him "work hard at school and you won't be a postman". :nana :nana

A gate meeting and a picket line are 2 different things,picket lines can be fun,we've all been there ect ect
A gate meeting is something completely different,we've all been there as well... :nervous

Thanks all its not a strike or pickets line just a meeting to discuss the results, the reason i asked if i needed to be there is because at last weeks gate meeting there were staff there that were on days off

I didnt go in for the meeting ill have a chat with my rep tomorrow! I know theres a strike planned as seen it in local media i just dont know the dates, reading some of the comments the locals arent best pleased, as you can probably tell im new to all this as only been a postie for 5 weeks, im a bit worried about what reaction im going to get tomorrow when im back out on my round, if any reaction?
