No Place for Inaccuracy

Martin Smith's otherwise reasonable article on trade unionism (July/August SR) was spoiled by an inaccuracy.

Paragraph 16 contains the following sentence: 'In an attempt to appease management he has signed a no-strike deal'. This is not true and if you can produce the agreement to support this assertion I would be amazed, as no such agreement exists.

Inaccuracy in the press is part of the world we live in but in a measured article accuracy should be at a premium.
