Solid strike by Barnet Council workers following ballot by UNISON.

Council workers in Barnet held a 50 strong picket line at the entrances to the North London Business Park today where Barnet council is based. The dispute is over the privatisation of services and contracts in the Tory controlled borough. After the morning picket the strikers then travelled across the borough to spend the day doing voluntary work painting a local community centre that serves local adults with learning difficulties.
