Strike in Lambeth
Library workers in Lambeth held a two-day strike last week in protest of planned branch closures. The workers were joined by UNISON members from nearby districts, as well as supporters from the community. The planned closures in Lambeth echo a troubling trend in the UK of library closures, conversion of library spaces to exercise facilities, and reliance on volunteers to run library services.
Photos and video of last week's strike can be viewed on the union's blog.
