Pickets, Supporters, and Junior Pickets in Hartshead Square on the picket line. From The Star (18/4/2011)

The branch wants to extend a big ‘thank you’ to all of our members (the vast majority) who stayed out of work yesterday during our day of action. We had a fantastic turnout locally and believe that to be the case countrywide – showing our strength of feeling about working conditions here.

We have had further messages of support from the Sheffield Trades Council, and many other organisations.


Dear Tom,


I have e-mailed the attachment regarding the Strike to all my trade union contacts asking them to give support and solidarity and I hope you approve of my initiative.

In accordance with normal practice the Sheffield TUC will be only too pleased to give assistance and solidarityas requested. So, please do not hesitate to contact me ASAP.
Best wishes.
Yours fraternally,
Bill Ronksley,
