|East Ayrshire pickets|
The good news - more pickets on picket lines than the last day of action - with lots of schools having picket lines on. At Kirkstyle Primary the pickets said that many parents turned up at the school with the children and, after reading the leaflet the Branch had produced about the Health & Safety issues, turned and took their children home. Many were disgusted that the Council had put their children at risk and had not given the parents full details when informing them the schools would be open.
|Employers reckon we're worth peanuts|
The Rally at The Cross in Kilmarnock saw two monkeys giving peanuts to the public - telling them the price of the packet of nuts was what the employer thought they were worth. The Branch handed out several hundred bags of nuts to the public - who were very supportive of the action.
All in all a very successful day
