Following the High Court injunction which prevented the strike in Further Education last week, UCU Westminster Kingsway Branch, have launched a petition

Following the High Court injunction which prevented the strike in Further Education last week, UCU Westminster Kingsway Branch, have launched a petition which may be found by following this link:

http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/fair-pay-for-all-defend-the-right-to-strike.html
It was the Principal of Westminster Kingsway that sought the injunction, so the more signatures we can get for this petition, the better will be the position of the UCU branch in the college in their struggle with their reactionary management.

The Green Party Trade Union group sends solidarity to NHS workers

Solidarity to all those NHS workers who are striking

The Green Party Trade Union group sends solidarity to all those NHS workers who are striking today (13/10/2014). It is a disgrace that in one of the richer nations of the world, we are so misgoverned that workers in our health services are not properly paid for their skilled and dedicated work, whilst the government continually seeks to make the provision of health available as a source of profit to the private sector. GPTU and the Green Party stand for a properly resourced health service staffed by properly paid workers providing health free at the point of need. Victory to the NHS strikers!
