Sheffield recycling workers vote for indefinite action
Today, Monday 18th June, sees the 15th day of strike action in the last month taken by the thirty-odd Sheffield recycling site workers .
Whilst the council was clearly stung by the lambasting it got from the strikers at last week's council meeting and there are rumours of talks to be held, the GMB members have voted to increase the pressure by calling indefinite strike action from Saturday 23rd June.
Their aim will be to close down all five sites. They need practical and financial support. Socialist Party members will help set up a strikers' support group that can mobilise supporters to help picket all sites 24 hours a day, and bring in the necessary donations and collections to keep the strikers going.
Please send messages of support and especially financial donations to: Peter Davies (Sova Strike Fund), GMB office, 188/190 Norfolk Street, Sheffield, S1 1SY. Please make cheques payable to GMB. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
