Polish Workers Join Walkouts

This report tells of hundreds of Polish workers, together with their British workmates, joining the wave of unofficial action spreading round the country.

It is a great example of British and immigrant workers standing together, and highlights that the *real* core issues in the dispute are about employers attacking jobs and conditions and turning worker against worker, not the dead-end nationalist nonsense of being "against foreign labour" that the press have headlined and some strikers have wrongly rallied around.

Plenty of arseholes in the article's comments box, though.
