I could do with some timely advice, that is for sure
Tomorrow morning is meant to be my surgery at Kensington Library.
Which will be closed because of the strikes
And I am a UNITE member (although my current workplace is not unionised) and I always go on the picket line when my own workplace is called out on strike (as it was twice when I worked at HMRC).
So I support the right of the local government workers to go on strike for better pay and I support their call for better pay too.
However, I also support my constituents who might turn up tomorrow at the library to see me with a problem and I don't want to let them down.
I am thinking of going to the library anyway tomorrow, even though it will be closed. I doubt if there will be a picket line there as it will probably be entirely shut, doors locked, nothing to see here, move along.
And I am thinking of sitting on the step with a newspaper or some paperwork I need to read, just in case anyone turns up.
But is this in the spirit of a strike?
Thoughts please! And you had better be quick because in about 12 hours time I am going to have to decide whether I should be putting my coat on!
