Power in the union and a picket line!

Optare workers in Unite were on strike in May and when a Unite member 
from Tyneside Safety Glass turned up to make a delivery he wasn't crossing any
picket line! A few weeks later workers at Tyneside Safety Glass were
themselves on strike and succeeded in winning a wage increase in excess of the rate of inflation. 
At Optare, strikers won concessions from management before returning to work.
