Solidarity with my union sistas in the Tramways lockout

September 26, 2008

I’m a little tired, I walked to Kilbirnie to support the locked out drivers yesterday – I had to go, I haven’t seen a lockout since Muldoon’s era – and bring some supportive messages from union women in my union (VUWSA, since you’re asking … although that’ll be PGSA & VUWSA, soon-ish), since I’ve just been celebrating union solidarity on Suffrage Day.

Many pages have been written and e-mailed and posted since the lockout began yesterday, so I’m not going to add a whole lot – today, you get ‘linky-love’, as defined by old campaigner Spanblather (she’s quit blogging, so I’m not linking to her page!):

There are some collections taking place to support the low-paid workers, who just lost a days’ pay (think of it in groceries – enough to feed the kids for a week?), so keep youe eyes open, and some of the pages above will have links to websites where donations can be made via paypal or credit card.

And if you’re taking a bus, tell the driver you support their action to gain a living wage!

I’ve realised I’m not getting the links to embed properly, so don’t tell me.
It’ll be sorted when someone else works out why it’s happening! 😉

Ever wondered what goes on when the proprietor of secondhand record shop at the butt end of the world chucks in the towel and goes back to having a life??
