I strongly believe in the right of all workers within the Hammersmith and Fulham Council and beyond.
When the Tories reared their heads and Cllr Stephen Greenhalgh took over and started to go around telling everyone that their jobs were saved, when they were not, most just sat there and did nothing. He then went on to get rid of home helps, meals on wheels, and other social services departments - while most just stood by and did nothing. Then came the real coup, he got rid of gardeners and park staff.
And still no one did anything, they just let it happen, a real case of 'I am all right Jack'.
But now we can all see where this was leading, once he got rid of all those departments, they are now picking the rest off.
Let's face it, if those departments were still run by the council, he would not be as quick to say he would dismiss all council employees unless they took a cut in conditions which were hard fought and won. Because if he did, he would have had to deal with striking refuse collectors, street cleansers, home helps and so on.
This would have not looked great for his administration as the streets would be full of rubbish and the vulnerable would suddenly be without essential services. Within a week, the borough would have looked like a landfill site.
He knew exactly what he was doing and now he feels the remaining staff are not a threat or have little muscle.
I have no doubt that most of these people will stand by and let it all happen and hope that it may not affect them yet again.
I do not shed tears for them as they certainly never shed a single tear for all those gone.
So in a way I feel a certain glee, knowing they could end up with working conditions that are reminiscent of those of the 50s and 60s.
We all know that unity is strength, Cllr Greenhalgh has succeeded in the old game of divide and rule.
For that much you can give him credit, but the worst shame goes to all those Hammersmith and Fulham employees who just sat back and allowed it to happen.
