Bethnal Green & Bow Labour Party Newsletter - Issue #2:35
Good evening - this week we are restating our policy of supporting union members who are striking against "Tower Rewards". You can show solidarity by joining the virtual picket in support of the strike being held on Friday, Monday and Tuesday. There is also advance notice of an online question and answer session by the ever popular Unmesh Desai AM on Thursday next week - register now before all the places go!
We are pleased to support the Solidarity Britannia foodbank - can you help them to provide food to some of the hardest hit by the pandemic - refugees with no recourse to public funds.
Be safe and stay well,
Lee Griffiths & Joe Buckley
Tower Rewards Strike - Virtual Picket: 3, 6, and 7 July
Sue Rossiter, Chair of Bethnal Green and Bow Labour Party, writes:
The Labour Party has a proud tradition of supporting workers who are striking to improve or keep their terms and conditions of employment. It is Bethnal Green and Bow Labour Party’s policy to oppose Tower Rewards and support the unions. Yet the plan to sack and re-engage 4,000 key workers including teaching staff, housing and homelessness support, drug and alcohol services, youth services and social workers has not been withdrawn.
Unison has explained how the new terms and conditions will disproportionately negatively impact BAME and women workers.
Full details can be found at this page on the Tower Hamlets Unison website.
These actions cannot be done in the name of Bethnal Green and Bow Labour Party.
So we are asking members to join the virtual picket lines on 3rd, 6th and 7th July, 11.30am.
*Registration*: Tower Rewards Strike eventbrites page
When: Friday 3rd, Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th July, 11.30am.
