Well if ever there is a place in England that isn’t revolutionary or willing for workers action you might think it would be Bury St Edmunds – or so you might think. Bury is a town that is typically seen as bourgeoisie and reactionary with quaint villages surrounding it which keep to themselves. The 30th however saw something that has not entered the consciousness of the people of Bury (after discussion with locals) ever. By this of course I’m talking about the mass strike action. As the UNISON rep for West Suffolk College I was able to draw upon my own reflections of the day and discuss with others why this was necessary.
