Glasgow care workers escalate action
The Glasgow care workers' strike action is growing stronger and more solid. After taking two 48-hour strikes in January the around 400 Unison members involved have now just completed a 72-hour strike over the Valentine's weekend. If social work bosses and the Labour administration thought the resolve of the workers could be broken, they couldn't have been more wrong. In fact the mood has hardened even further. At a mass meeting on Sunday 16th February workers unanimously voted to escalate their action and intend to take a further three 72-hour strikes starting in March.
