Janine and other Poets on the Picket Line will be showing some rhyming solidarity with London Transport Museum cleaners and porters.
Workers' self-defence starts with getting unionised at work. This section includes material on the trade union struggles and issues I am involved in and/or urge you to support!
I'd rather go to prison or be given a huge fine
Or have cosmetic surgery from Doctor Frankenstein
Sit through a boring lecture on interior design
Yes, I’d rather do most anything than cross a picket line
Due to impending surgery, this event has been postponed. Watch this space for rescheduled date!
Janine tutors this week-long course, which takes place in Glasgow and is free to RMT reps and members to attend.

Action on Resolutions from Disabled Workers Conference
Ranting on the Unplugged stage on Saturday evening, speaking about Autism in the Workplace on Sunday morning, then taking to the main stage an hour later.
We're trying a coup but our tactics were busted
The more we manoevre, the more they're disgusted
The rules can be broken and figures adjusted
The members?! There's no way those oiks can be trusted.
We need a new leader, more Theresa than May
But the bloody trade unions won't do what we say
We can't have a vote cos they'll vote the wrong way
So we'll write for The Sun and we'll go and make hay
