After claiming only yesterday that Unite the union exists to “help save communities from devastation, put food on workers’ tables, presents under the Christmas tree and hope in people’s lives” it looks like Lennie the “Grinch” McCluskey has stolen Christmas, with Unite announcing a strike hitting card and present deliveries. Their website reports:
“Parcel deliveries in London could be severely hit in the run-up to Christmas, after staff at UPS Parcels voted overwhelmingly to strike in a dispute over unreasonable workloads and alleged bullying. The 120 drivers and loaders, members of Unite, the country’s largest union, who work at the Camden depot – the biggest UPS depot in Europe – have voted by a massive 91 per cent to take strike action.”
Won’t someone think of the children?
