We Won’t Sit Back And Watch Jobs And Services Destroyed Say RMT

Commenting on Vince Cable’s threat to make Britain’s already draconian anti-union laws even more repressive, RMT general secretary Bob Crow said today:

“Cable is effectively telling us that the right to strike is something we can have only if we choose not to use it.

He is trying to come across as the nice cop of the ConDem coalition, but the truth is that he wants us to sit back and watch as his government destroys our jobs and wrecks our services.

Working people are under attack as never before, and if it takes co-ordinated strike action and civil disobedience to stop it then so be it.

Britain already has repressive anti-union laws that are outside legal norms and we have to jump through hoops to take action as it is."
