Strike (in)action on way.

I attended a meeting of the Conservative Group on Bury Council last night and one of the main topics of debate was the threatened strke action by certain groups of local authority workers which is scheduled for the 16th and 17th July. This means that some of bins might well not be emptied and many other Council services will be seriosly disrupted. The dispute is over pay and we were informed that although the ballot on strike action was carried by a majority of 55% to 45% there was a turnout of only 27% so in reality around 15 union members out of every 100 actually voted for the strike.
