I visited Parsons this morning with Bob Murdoch, an SWP member who works there. He introduced me to the shop steward who told us that the secretary wasn’t there but to come back on Wednesday to do a bucket collection and also to bring some literature which they could put up on the union notice board to explain what the strike is about.
Bob gave me £25 to spend on picketing so the trip wasn’t entirely wasted. Travel expenses are a bit of a burden so I asked the Treasurer if they could help so they gave me £1! I have been getting lifts off John McIvor but strangely his car was written off when it was parked outside of a bank and was smashed into by a car driven by an off duty policeman! Coincidence?
