Working Overtime = Strike Breaking 15/05/2012

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.

The branch would like to thank all of its members who came out on strike on 1oth May, and continue to support the union in what is a long and difficult campaign.

Since 10th May we are now in a period of overtime ban as part of the Pensions Campaign. Any members who take on overtime during this period are assisting the Department in minimizing the disruption of the strike, and effectively crossing a picket line.

Why do we have overtime bans in a dispute?

The impact of the strike is lessened by people working overtime – that backlog is cleared up. We may want to make up the money we lost, but ultimately it’s the same as crossing a picket line.

How can I help?

By not doing overtime, on the weekend or on the same day. There is overtime being offered in several business areas. Please do not take it on. If overtime is offered on a weekend we will be picketing those sites. We would appreciate volunteers to assist with this picketing.
