No tubes on NYE.......

    the B Sorry

    Does it matter? :confused:

    What is membership compared to how you think and feel?

    France has a lower Union participation rate than the UK but many deals between workers and bosses follow what unions do.

    No membership, but very much feeling and doing the same thing.

    So not a trade-unionist then. But i take your point. So is sleaterkinny a wildcat firebrand? Organising walk-outs at the merest hint that the bosses are going to swap the soft bog-paper at work for that hard tracing-paper stuff from school?

    i.e. the type of stuff that would put shim in a position, through his/her considerable experience, to be critical of the industrial strategy of rank amateurs like the RMT in terms of when they choose to call strike action?

    cheers the B, I'm actually very surprised I got past a couple of critical posts before the scab/tory/liberal insults started being dealt out, it's no more than I expected unfortunately....

    Fair enough, let's just hope the RMT sees sense and scraps the NYE strike so as not to offend the sensibilities of hardcore non-union activists such as yourself.

    Here's to January 5th when they'll do the real damage!

    Shandy, you're making yourself look like a twat by singling sleater out like this.

    Common failing of the some on the left, singling out for insults people who they unilaterally designate as 'liberals', 'scabs' or whatever, instead of concentrating on the real discussion ...

    I appreciate you've withdrawn the 'scab' slur, but it was bang out of order to make it in the first place.

    I support the strike and the RMT btw, but fair's fair, there are plenty of people around are far more hostile to trade union actions than him!

    "Hopes fade for Tube strike talks

    ...the union said it was not prepared to enter talks unless LU agreed to postpone the introduction of new rotas at the centre of the dispute..."


    I don't get this, isn't this what the talks are meant to be about?!

    You're right actually, but at 1 in the morning after a day on the sauce I tend not to be too picky :oops:

    Also from the BBC story:

    They have a commitment from TfL that there will be no overall cut in station staff and they know perfectly well that no new rosters will be introduced which have not been fully validated for safety.

    So who's lying?

    Well...

    ..I see that Tribune of the people Ken Livingstone (who uses taxis paid for by mug voters anyway) cares not a flying toss about safety issues and has attacked the union over the strike. Reason enough (if any were needed) to support the RMT.

    You're the only pathetic wretch around here, son.

    Robots are the pinnacle of *engineering*

    Software is a minor issue.

    Yet the space shuttle software group have *never* shipped buggy software, despite (or perhaps because of) never working more than 40 hours a week.

    (Read Bruce Powel Douglass book, Doing Hard Time, about realtime embedded software. Skip the UML shite.)

    Glad I'm not in London this NYE. The strikers should be fined liked those in New York.

    I'm glad you're not in London, too.

    You're talking rubbish, btw, the strikers weren't fined the union was.

    Why would you want to make striking illegal? Do you not regard it as an important civil liberty?
