The magnificent Glasgow women's strike has witnessed picket line scenes that we haven't seen for many years.
The 8,000 care, school, and catering workers, members of the GMB and Unison, have marched, protested and picketed in huge numbers, numbers which clearly exceed the limits placed on unions by the Tory anti-union laws.
And the solidarity strike action by male bin workers, hundreds of whom walked out in solidarity with the women, was a briliant response the women's action...and again in defiance of the anti-union laws.
It's hardly surprising that the women took action after waiting 12 years for their equal pay claim to be met by Glasgow council. They've been losing 1,500 pounds a year.
We urge every People's Assembly supporter to make sure that the women know you support them.
