JIB Dispute Rank & File
Speaker: Michael Dooley UCATT
No to 35% Pay cut
The government is planning to make some £350 million in cuts to legal aid, including £50 million from social welfare law. Some of the most savage cuts are to be criminal law. But who will be most affected by the cuts? How will it effect class actions against corporate malpractice? What do the cuts to welfare law mean? Will it really restrict the poor’s access to justice?
Speaker: Brian Mark and Cris McCurley.
Thurs, 13th Oct, 7pm.
St John’s Church Hall,
The purpose of this message is for us to get as big a turnout as possible in the Newcastle Labour Club this coming Monday the 26th at 7pm. Its possible that Bill Green and or the Union will attempt to take over this dispute. Given the history of disputes led by the leadership of the union this would be the kiss of death – I think, and I would welcome a correction, its fair to say that there has NEVER been a single victory, in say the last 8 years or so, in any dispute that has been led by the Union leadership.
So if the leadership take control of this dispute we’re fucked and we
may as well go home and give in to the bosses.
Also this dispute is not JUST about Tyneside. If you know ANY
construction worker in the North East get them to turn up at the
Newcastle Labour Club.
We need contact details of construction workers in Hartlepool and
Teeside generally. The union is not showing any signs of going to give
us these contact lists. So we have to collect them ourselves. There
was a good construction branch in Hartlepool with a very good secretary and chair. Anybody know how to contact them? If you do please contact him, pass on my email address or that of Jimmy Warne.
We MUST spread and escalate this dispute. The bosses are already
escalating the dispute by reducing hourly rates and threatening
sackings if you don’t do as you are told. If they can do this why not
us, but however the dispute is spread or escalated we must put
pressure on the union officials to do as WE want.
