... as Magnus Magnusson might say.
When the union embarks on a campaign, it has to see it through. Station staff - including some of LUL's lowest-paid grades - sacrificed two days' pay to act not just in their own interests, but in the interests of colleagues and passengers. Our union should respect that sacrifice and not settle for small beer.
That doesn't mean that we go on and on and on and on, never agreeing any compromise deals. But it does mean that we should go as far as our fighting capacities can take us.
But RMT has a bad habit of dipping its toes into the cold water of strike action, then running for cover. It's a bit like the opening sequence of the Monkees.
(It should be said that the woeful TSSA is too terrified to even look at the water, let alone get its little toes anywhere near the water's edge.)
