Lyon Park Primary School was closed today as National Education Union members went on strike to oppose wage cuts that the management want to impose on some staff as part of a restructure.
Brent North MP, Barry Gardiner, visited the picket line and told the spirited strikers:
Thank God you've got a union that actually supports you! All support to you.
It's great that you have the NEU backing you in this dispute. I know it is tough but stick it out.
Actually, you see time and time again that you win because when the union backs you, you keep on going - build the solidarityand that will mean ultimately you can win this dispute.
