Southampton city council strikes continue

Refuse workers finished their first strike action against cuts to pay, jobs and services on Friday 27 May 100% solid. Support has poured in from around the country and internationally.

News of support from the United Steel Workers of America was cheered at a mass meeting on the picket line.

Selective strike action will continue with all workers in Parking Services out on strike for seven days from Tuesday 31 May.

A mass meeting of council workers will be addressed by Unite general secretary Len McCluskey. Unite's recent statement opposing all cuts and for generalised industrial action to defeat the cuts will raise the confidence of Southampton council workers that this battle can be won.
