Your first mistake was listening to anything your Dom says. :wink:
Seriously, they are not privy to any strike info we are not.

Yes, that fits with my experienced understanding of how trade unions work, our strike will be sacrificed for the "percieved" greater good of supporting the GE with the aim of getting a labour government ino power.

(for purposes of renationalisation of industries etc)
the ultimate long term goal and broader future vision.

not according to Terry Pullinger. on last nights Q&A. He said we will ABSOLUTELY be going on strike, general election or not. he also said he doesn't think 24 hour stoppages will be enough. he said we need something more substantial

he also said RM also appealed to our moral sense to not strike during a general election, to which was absolutely rejected by the executive. and there is no law whatsoever to stop us going on strike during a general election. it is gift from heaven for us that a GE has been announced at this crucial time.

Yes, been on many strikes, 1 day stoppages usually fail and can be managed
The idea is people dont lose too much £ and can sustain it for longer.
But it usually needs escalating virtually straight away and thats when things get very ugly.
Not a playing a strikes anymore it's all out.
