The branch is pleased to announce its support for the 3 Cosas Campaign, which we passed a motion in favour of backing a few months ago at the BEC. There will also be a motion going to the branch AGM to send to PCS Conference.

We are now excited to announce that the 3 Cosas Campaign, alongside the IWGB (their union) and the National Campaign Against Fees and Cuts, supported by this branch and a number of other campaigns in Sheffield, is coming to Sheffield for a public meeting on 20th February. This meeting is open to everyone, and we particularly welcome our members in Mitie and Balfour Beatty who experience many of the same issues as the IWGB workers.

You can meet branch members to go up to the meeting on the tram, at 6:30 at the entrance to Hartshead Square office

3 Cosas Campaign Speaker Tour: Sheffield

 7pm Thursday 20th February

University of Sheffield Students Union

Discovery Room 1, Level 5 of the SU

Low-paid, overworked and shut out, cleaners and agency workers at the University of London are getting unionised and fighting back. They’ll be in Sheffield talking about how they went on strike and won, and why the fight continues. Come along to hear the inspirational story!

The 3 Cosas Campaign’s aims are simple – to ensure equality of terms and conditions between the University of London’s direct employees, and its outsourced workers.

 There are three areas (‘tres cosas’) where the disparity between University and contract workers is greatest – SICK PAY, HOLIDAYS and PENSIONS.

The campaign aims to persuade the University to ensure that all workers have the same rights in these three areas. It is eminently affordable, and it is the only right thing to do.
