strike

Yesterday the Branch Executive Committee passed a motion of support for the ‘3 Cosas’ campaign of outsourced and auxiliary workers at the University of London. Members can donate to the strike fund by clicking on the above link.

These workers are demanding sick pay, holidays, and pensions in line with in-house/non contracted staff at the University of London. They work for Balfour Beatty, the same company that the messenger staff in our DWP buildings are employed by, so this is a really important campaign for us to keep an eye on. The workers met with the employer through ACAS today, but the employer has offered them nothing, so they will be on strike next week on Wednesday and Thursday.

You can find out about the campaign here: http://3cosascampaign.wordpress.com/ and on their Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/3coca

There are a number of videos about the campaign, this most recent one about the strike. More can be found be searching ‘3 Cosas Campaign’ on YouTube.
