Brendan Barber warns of wildcats

In response to the government's talk about tightening strike laws Barber argues,

Quote:
“If they do try and change the law the Government would run a real risk of provoking more groups of workers to think ‘We’ll go down different routes - we won’t have ballots. We’ll carry out wild cat responses.’ That would make strikes much more difficult to deal with."

Good example of the unions' role in society... (honeybee showed me this btw.)

Yeah, that's a great fucking quote from that ballbag and I think it's going to make it's way into a piece I've been writing (for over a year now...).
