People were still able to go in and out of 100 Wood St as normal despite the presence of the picket. An e-mail
sent by management to workers the day before had suggested the building might need to be under lock-down
but the picket and protest were peaceful and lawful, making the case for the cleaners. A banner on the pavement
tells people that Thames were happy to spend over £20,000 taking the cleaners to court, but not to pay them properly.
'Is it too much to ask to be paid a living wage!'
Those on the picket get ready to move away from the building the 10 metres required by the injunction for them to protest
Drums are handed out
And the UVW carefully measure the distance required by the injunction
which takes them most of the way across Wood St
A car stops for them to measure across the road
