I lost my job, but found an occupation!
This is my last post for 2011, as I am calling it a day from tomorrow afternoon.
And what a year it has been! Both of the major strikes this year have sent a clear message to the government that they simply do not understand the anger across the public and private sectors and the frustration with the corrupt notion that we are somehow all in this together.
That this anger has manifest itself as part of the international occupy movement is something that we should all be justifiably proud of - and I hope that the movement continues to grow during 2012 and beyond.
There has of course been many other reasons for optimism amngst trade unionists in particular and from a global perspective, and I hope my blog has been able to capture some of this momentum during 2011.
I will continue to provide a method to survey global developments across the spectrum of interests for trade unionists in the UK and internationally.
I do hope that you have a good break over Christmas and I extend a hope for continuing solidarity during 2012.
