Office Window Closed: Union’s Fitting Tribute To Bob Crow

A FITTING Tribute to Bob Crow, the RMT Union leader who died this morning: office window closed:

 

A staff member at the TSSA union office in central London, closes the reception in respect of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) leader Bob Crow, following the announcement of his death. Picture date: Tuesday March 11, 2014. Mr Crow, who was 52, was one of the most high-profile, left-wing union leaders of his generation, sparking as much anger from passengers hit by rail and Tube strikes, as praise from his members for winning pay rises. He was constantly involved in industrial disputes and campaigns and led a walkout by London Underground workers last month in a dispute over ticket office closures. The straight-talking south Londoner was a passionate supporter of Millwall Football Club. His death caused shockwaves in the trade union movement today.

VOLCANO Bob Crow – Iceland chapter – has grounded all flights in the UK. Air above the UK is a no go area.

Unite’s Joint General Secretary Tony Woodley says more eruptions (surely disruptions? – ed) are planned.

Anorak has been around the airports checking out the people heading nowhere. There is no escape from knife island.

One in – all in!
