  • Unbefreakinlievable. Barely a month since the last one.


    Is there a feeling that anything is accomplished by these strikes?

  • Nothing accomplished but a nice break for the workers who don't really care about the country's future.


    As a Red Clydesider , I have always supported the right of workers to strike in support of a legitimate claim . However these general strikes are juts a joke and don't achieve anything.

  • I hadn’t considered the aspect of striking for the fun of a day off (paid?).

    I am totally convinced here that many workers see a strike a long weekend - I would love to see the absentee levels for the recent strikes which have been called mid week....


    Maybe its me just getting old and cynical.....

    or maybe it’s a matter of seeing through to the core of a situation.
