About 50 protesters attended the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) called Lobby of Ed Miliband's Doncaster North surgery on Thursday 24 April in support of the Care UK strike.

Around 30 Care UK workers were there, about a dozen of them went in to discuss with Ed Miliband. They said Miliband was supportive, didn't think Care UK should have been given the contract and was going to speak to Labour Mayor Ros Jones. But still Miliband won't publicly come out in support.

We finished off with an impromptu march up and down Bentley High Street which stopped the traffic.

Thanks to all who attended, especially Sean McGowan from Doncaster RMT, and good luck to Care UK strikers and supporters standing as TUSC candidates in the May council elections.
