Strike Stories

Workers stories in their own words from the picket lines.

Quality Care Deserves Quality Pay

Our bosses look at us like we’re nothing. The work we do, we do it with pride, we do it with dignity and we do it to put bread on the table, but to Sage’s trustees this is not ‘decent work’, it is not ‘a real job’.

Don’t Cut IT

A victorious strike at the University… would give confidence to all those in the education sector fighting back


“Every strike reminds the workers that their position is not hopeless, that they are not alone.”
