Around 240 workers struck for better wages at eight RAF bases on Thursday of last week. They are members of the Unite and GMB unions employed by ISS to provide food and cleaning services.

ISS offered a pay rise of 8p an hour to workers at normal rates, and just 2p an hour to the lowest paid. There were pickets at College Cranwell in Lincolnshire, where Prince Michael visited the officers’ graduation. Bosses bussed soldiers in to scab.
