Ste Armstrong, Warrington Socialist Party

Drivers and engineers in Rucorn continue to stand firmly together in support of their claim for a fair pay deal from employer Arriva.

The pickets at Beechwood were upbeat when they spoke to Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) supporters paying their weekly solidarity visit.

Socialist Party leaflets and copies of the Socialist were warmly received by the workers, who are grateful for the support, but would like to see more from across the wider labour movement.

All Unite and GMB branches in the region, from all sectors, could issue statements of support for the strike.

The rally for safety on 4 December and the lobby of the council's transport committee in Liverpool on 7 December are vital.

A unified workforce, committed to passenger safety and job security, fair pay for all and a publicly owned transport system, run for public convenience not private profit, will not be bullied into backing down. Victory to the Arriva strikers!
