MANAGEMENT IN the Department for Work and Pensions were recently shocked by a five to one vote for indefinite strike at the Stratford social security office in east London.
The strike vote was to defend union rep Charlie McDonald. He says, “It was obviously down to the ballot why management dropped the most serious charges against me.
“There are two other charges outstanding, so we can’t rest on our laurels. Two union members in Hastings are being investigated on similar charges.”
