Yesterday’s moments strikes across England will be reverberating for weeks to come.
The extraordinary response from UNISON members – and support from the public – was clear, and you can look back at that on the rolling report we ran throughout the day.
But today, let’s have a further look at action across London, as photographer Marcus Rose followed UNISON’s general secretary Christina McAnea to three pickets.
It began at Waterloo, with vast media interest, before continuing to Deptford, where it wouldn’t be Christmas without a babe in arms (see above) and then ending after dark around the brazier in Edmonton.
It might have been the shortest day of the year, but in many ways it was the longest.
