Last week (9th-15th) saw a Sol Fed nationwide week of action against the misleadingly-named Office Angels. Prompted by the non-payment for two days work of a Wimbledon temp called Dan, the temping agency dealt with pickets outside its London offices and a successful phone and email-jamming exercise with requests that the poor man be paid.

Although Dan’s still not got his money, the red and black banners seem to have got the shoddy-work specialists running. One publicly announced picket in Wimbledon found the offices conveniently closed for “staff training”. Small demos also took place in Leeds, Northampton and Brighton.
