Just sack them! (part two)

The health service union, Unison, has said staff at NHS Logistics will hold a 24-hour strike next Thursday to protest the sale of the network to German firm DHL. It will be, if it goes ahead, the first national strike in the NHS for 18 years.

It really is time we as a nation, and our Government (which nominally acts on our behalf) to resist the naked blackmail which some unions, particularly in the publicly-owned parts of the economy, seem determined to re-introduce into British public life. If this planned strike, and later strikes which are threatened, goes ahead then the Government should sack those involved.

(This post follows an earlier post on a similar theme last week.)
