UNITE names more strike days at Shelter

According to a message sent to members of the Facebook group "Defend Shelter Staff! Defend Shelter!", UNITE has named the next strike days as 24-25th April, following members' rejection of the measly offer from management.

I think it's a really smart move to time the strike to coincide with national strikes by NUT, PCS and UCU (as well as members of UNITE and other unions at Birmingham City Council). People are always nervous that their message will get lost in something bigger, but as we found out last year when we at Fujitsu went on strike at the same time as PCS and UNISON health workers in Manchester, doing things together makes us all stronger and boosts everyone's confidence.
