IDS on your bike, we deserve the right to strike!

On Saturday 8th August more than 15 activists with Right to Strike took a trip to Chingford to serve Iain Duncan Smith with a high court injunction.

You see, the Tories and the bosses are so keen to take high court injunctions out against our democratically decided strikes that we thought we’d give them a taste of their own medicine. And with the Tories proposing that unions in key sectors must get 40% of their members to vote yes in a ballot (not just of those that vote) to have a legal strike we wondered how Iain would measure up.

Turns out Iain Duncan Smith only got elected on 31% of the electorate, and the whole government on only 24% of the electorate. Well short of the targets they set for us – and they have all the news outlets covering their ballot!

So we took a high court judge to Chingford and sentences Iain Duncan Smith.

Chanting “IDS on your bike, we deserve the right to strike!” and “IDS hear us say, union laws – no way!” we leafleted passers by and took signatures on our petition for the Right to Strike.

Other Tories beware! We are coming for you next!
