The question is thus.
You may not hold a person against their will. You may certainly not hold a person against their will to make demands of another.
Therefore why on earth is it legal to hold the general public hostage to "make a point" to your employer?
And stop that comment you've already started typing.
I am simply trying to understand one simple thing about striking unions, and yes this is regarding HMRC today. I'm no politician so excuse any ignorance shown here.
I'm not against the idea of industrial action. There are obviously times when large groups of employees may feel grieved about something. Their union may ask them to join forces and act upon it.
Why is the only form of action a strike? Something that is no less idiotic than "Do what we ask or this kitten gets it." Ok, so there's no feline lives at stake but they may cut off his food supply and stop it prowling around behind the sofa and washing machine like normal. Does it REALLY have to impact the general public so much?
I am *strongly* against this, obviously and feel absolutely fed up that other human beings - friends and family included would partake in such action knowing how much of a problem it could cause other innocent people. There's collateral damage and then there's extracting the urine.
