2nd Year business students partcipated in a “mock strike” today. They have been learning about industrial disputes and types of industrial action. They also learned about the necessary steps employees must take to make a strike official. To make their strike official a secret ballot was held to vote whether they wanted to proceed with strike action. As the majority of the class voted “yes”, the students gave 7 days notice and started working on their picket signs. They selected different Trade Unions and an issue over which to strike. Today they took to the picket line. Thanks to Holly Long who wrote up a Newspaper Report on the event. Well done on all involved.
