Police called on striking Tower Hamlets workers?

As Tower Hamlets council workers begin a three-day strike to resist mass sackings, reports are coming in suggesting bosses from the Labour-run council have called the police on one of the picket lines.

This disgraceful action seems to have been a response to bin workers in Unite refusing to cross the Unison picket line, an elementary act of class solidarity which bosses will no doubt claim constitutes secondary action and breaches anti-union laws.

If these reports are accurate, they heap further shame on the Labour council – not content with attempting to sack its entire workforce and re-engage them on worse terms and conditions, it apparently wants to collude with the police to use Tory anti-union laws to break strikes, too.
