Unison strike

by Richard on July 16, 2008

Thousands of council workers are on strike across the UK today and tomorrow, forcing the closure of many of our schools. All but one that I know in Swansea is shut. I’ve got every sympathy for the strikers: the union represents many of the lowest paid whose work is routinely undervalued and unappreciated. My sympathy is tempered a tad by the knowledge that about half the children in our school* are about to descend on my house in exchange for another parent taking my kids tomorrow.

Pray for me.

* Of course, I exaggerate for effect
