There will be further action the following week: from 12.01am on Thursday, February 26 and ending at 11.59pm on Sunday, March 1.

The chapel would be grateful if freelances were unavailable for work during the days of the action. Any freelance who experiences hardship as a result of being unavailable should contact the chapel.
