SCHOOL SUPPORT staff were on the picket line at John Scurr school in Tower Hamlets, east London, on Monday morning. They and hundreds more workers employed by local councils across London were on strike all this week as part of their continuing fight for an increase in the London weighting allowance they get for the extra costs of living and working in the capital.

Most of those out were in selected schools, as part of rolling action called by their Unison union. Smaller groups of housing, parking and library workers were also out in some boroughs.
