I'm working class too but don't believe in strike action.
You apply for a job in a Company, if you don't like the conditions or pay, find that other job with the better level of pay and conditions. Not that easy though is it?
If you provide key services to the GBP you have a duty to do your job, which you are paid to do.Thik of how much money people will loose due to the inconvenience, think of how many old or disabled people will have trouble getting care due to the carers not being able to get to their appointments by car. I guess we can screw them because a few workers want more money.
It's blackmail pure and simple. we don't teach our kids to resort to blackmail to get their way, nor should we as adults do the same.
