Support the Strike! Break the Strike!

Guido hears that the lowly paid hacks at Guardian Online have received letters outlining what their individual salary will be if the pay offer is accepted. The NUJ says: “It is highly regrettable that management decided to bypass the chapel and send individual letters offering cash which until now has not been forthcoming during the pay round. We have not seen a copy of the letter and cannot comment on its contents.”

Clearly the Guardian’s bosses are determined to break any strike by going around the union. Guido has offered to round up a crack team of bloggers for Georgina Henry to scab in the event of a strike. Successful bloggers like Tim Worstall, Devil’s Kitchen, Dizzy, who knows maybe some of the boys at Samizdata might help if Georgina asks nicely. These are all proven writers who would bring a different perspective and a high traffic following. Given how much traffic share Comment is Free gets in comparison to say Iain Dale and Guido, it will probably give them a boost. Of course we would need to be on the same daily rate as Alan Rusbridger…
