Mass picket at Crossrail, Monday December 5, 6:30am

Via Reel News:

Rank and file electricians have had enough of being paid a third of what they’re worth on the biggest infrastructure project in the world, and walked off the job, shutting down 5 sites with unofficial strike action. They then occupied Laing O’Rourke’s offices in Oxford St, one of the contractors on Crossrail and a notorious blacklister. Now Laings are trying to move a democratically elected shop steward off the project. Time to get behind the sparks – mass picket to defend Terry Wilson on Monday December 5, 6:30am, Tottenham Court Road site. Entrance in Sutton Row, off Soho Square.



About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
