A rally and march called by Cambridge Trades Union Council in support of the UNISON two-day strike action took place in Cambridge last week. According to UNISON 500,000 workers supported the strike nationally in protest against the offer of a 2.45% pay increase. Although the media reported that the strike was quite successful nationally with closures of public services including schools, libraries, sports centres, refuse collections and other services, in Cambridge the rally and march was not well attended with a turnout of about sixty workers.
