Continued action in crane drivers' dispute
Crane drivers for Ainscough, the country's largest crane supplier, took a second day of strike action on 8 February. A report of a picket line in Cardiff during the first strike was carried in last week's Socialist. Iain Dalton reports on the latest walkout from Leeds:
Striking for an improvement in their pay offer, pickets reported just how busy they and the company had been in the last year, with the company producing record profits. Given this, their anger at the pitiful pay offer the company has made, was compounded by the fact that seven years ago the company had failed to honour the second part of a two-year pay deal giving them a 60 pence an hour increase, claiming they would do so in better times.
