Solidarity to GMB Veolia Workers! 10/04/2012

Posted by pcsdwpsheffield in Uncategorized.
Last week, the branch sent this message to GMB, whose members in Veolia (Sheffield City Council’s refuse management side) have been Working To Rule and will be on strike this week and potentially for further dates. Please do not hesitate to send further messages of solidarity to sheffield@gmb.org.uk
Sending you our full solidarity from the PCS DWP Sheffield Branch in your struggle.
The pay freeze imposed by Sheffield City Council is also replicated in the civil service and we share your anger at this real-terms pay cut. Workers in your sector are vastly underpaid for an essential and demanding service already, and the freeze adds insult to injury.
We oppose the freeze and hope to move towards a broad, fighting campaign over pay across the public sector. The low paid civil service staff here in Jobcentre Plus feel the bite of a third year of pay freeze as you do.
Solidarity for your dispute!
Rosie Huzzard
Branch Chair
On Behalf of PCS Department for Work and Pensions Sheffield Branch
