Liverpool’s dockers have voted to accept a massively-improved pay deal from Peel Ports, after months of resolute strike action. The deal means a pay rise of between 14.3 and 18.5 percent, depending on ‘skillet’.
Congratulations to the dockers, whose solidarity, spirit and determination have been an example. Now on to postal workers, rail workers, nurses and everyone else fighting against the Establishment for decent pay and treatment in the absence of meaningful parliamentary opposition.
