Lewisham unions continue to fight cuts

Towards the end of one busy year and ready to start another one, Lewisham Trades Council members have continued to take an active role in fighting cuts:

Bromley Council attack workers

On Saturday 8th December we joined UNITE members from Bromley leafleting homes to warn residents of the council's proposals to sack all its employees and offer them new contracts on lower pay and worse conditions. Read more at the link below:

Binmen set to strike

We also fully support the Unite members striking for reinstatement of their colleagues disgracefully sacked by Bromley Council. Read more below:

Save Lewisham Hospital

Union members across Lewisham joined protests on Thursday 13/12/12 to show mark the end of the consultation on the proposed closure and show their determination to defend the hospital. Hundreds joined in outside their workplaces like PCS members at Catford Jobcentre.

PCS Balloting for strike action

PCS Union members across the DWP are voting for strike action in January to stop compulsory redundancies across their department. If management do not back down the union has no choice but to strike. National ballots across the civil service to fight government attacks on pay and conditions look set to follow in February.

Bromley, Lewisham, civil service, private sector, public service - wherever the cuts are, unions will fight them!
