"30 pieces of silver" fails to break Hackney strike

Four-hour strikes across East London will go ahead after an offer of "30 pieces of silver" was rejected by drivers. Last Friday 185 employees at CT Plus walked out over pay. Two more strikes are scheduled for the following Fridays. 
Regional secretary Steve Hart said the company has been offering money to workers to break the strike. He claims CT Plus has been paying an extra £270 for every worker who crosses the picket line. He added "This is money that could go a long way towards settling the dispute... [CT Plus's profits] come from the public purse. Our members will not be fooled by these 30 pieces of silver."
