"We support one's workers" does not sound very hardcore does it!

There's a small chance of me heading down the picket line in Colchester tomorrow, largely depending on whether my striking friend can be arsed heading up himself.

Striking over new machines that actually make the job easier seems somewhat petty when the workers' pay deal runs out within in the next month and they're facing not receiving any raise at all.

Another strike is due June 7th, right down the line, I'll try and get down to ipswich (did last time but everyone was home roll eyes) to report and maybe a pic of an empty train, anyone gonna be able to get down to Norwich/Colchester etc or know of where pickets are going to be?
