The dramatic and tumultuous moment in the campaign occurred at a meeting in Trafalgar Square on 21 September 1913 when Syme stated that We are going to form a Union in London within the next month at the very latest, and we hope to be able to inform the Police of London that this Union has been formed but the disgraceful part of the business is that not one of our Police Officers dare join it openly.

NUPPO informed the police authorities that there would be a strike unless their demands were met by midnight on 29 August 1918. The government and the authorities were taken aback by the swiftness of union action and the Home Office collected evidence of the widespread refusal to work on the morning of the 30 August and throughout 31 August.
