Let me make one thing clear. I’m not anti-strike. I am however a big believer in employers & employees working together to achieve resolution to any conflict. Swiftly.
And if they can’t (a la TFL and the infamous London Underground strike that has had a somewhat detrimental effect on the capital today), I fully endorse sending in Gene Hunt to sort the problem out.
If we could, I’d wager an agreement would be reached within 30 minutes, way before he reached for the leather gloves / toiler-head-flush manoeuvre.
