When bosses tried to slash our ­conditions and break our union, we had to fight back.

We took serious action, not a one or two-day strike they would have easily ridden out.

Now our union is 50 ­percent larger, and stronger than ever.

We want the message to go out to all workers under attack—we won and so can you.

Adam and other strikers will be talking about their fight at the Unite the Resistance conference in central London on Saturday 15 November.
