NSSN 353: Birmingham binworkers win – Support the Sept 4 #McStrike

This week’s bulletin celebrates another victory by striking workers. Hot on the heels of the successful Glasgow Janitors in Unison that we showcased last week, the Unite Birmingham binworkers have forced the employer to retreat. However, many trade unionists will be angry that it’s a Labour city council that was looking to attack workers’ grades. Now binworkers in Doncaster have forced a last minute pay offer that has averted today’s proposed strike for now.

We also highlight again the fight of low-paid McDonald’s workers in Cambridge and Crayford who have voted to strike and will take action on Monday September 4th. We call on all our supporters and affiliates to support them and build solidarity.

Unite hails victory in Birmingham bin dispute (16 Aug) – Unite today (Wednesday 16 August) said that it has achieved victory in the Birmingham bin dispute which will result in the suspension of the current industrial action. The union said that the city council had accepted the refuse workers’ case and restored the grade 3 jobs, which are responsible for the safety at the rear of the refuse vehicles. Normal collection of bins will resume, as Unite and the city council hold further talks under the auspices of the conciliation service, Acas to resolve the outstanding issues. Unite assistant general secretary Howard Beckett said: “We are very pleased that we have reached the stage where we can suspend the industrial action while we hold further talks about the future of the refuse service read more

It’s on! Get behind the 4 September BFAWU #McStrike (21 Aug) – McDonald’s workers balloted at Crayford (south east London) and Cambridge stores have voted by an incredible 95.7 percent for strikes, and their BFAWU bakers’ union has now named Monday 4 September as the first strike day. A strike committee of workers met and decided to go for the date for their historic action–the first ever strike at McDonald’s in the UK. The workers taking this bold step need the URGENT solidarity of the wider trade union movement. Please give generously now to their strike fund HERE. Please also rush messages of support, encouragement and solidarity for the workers to fastfoodrights@mail.com

Already, just by voting to strike and organising in the union, the workers have gained an impressive shift from McDonald’s–who have stated only now after the strike vote that by the end of 2017 they will implement the twice promised offer of a guaranteed hours contract to every UK McDonald’s worker. The workers and BFAWU rightly want this signed off, but it is a major victory for the some 80,000 workers at McDonald’s and shows what getting organised, joining a union and taking action can do. The strike remains on, over a number of grievances at the two workplaces, and the workers are also fighting for £10 an hour minimum wage now, union recognition, and for the demand on scrapping zero hours contracts to be implemented

McStrike

On the Saturday before the strike, 2 September, BFAWU is holding a protest at McDonald’s HQ in East Finchley, north London. We are calling on solidarity from the wider movement on this day, with banners, collections etc, brought along in support.

On the day of the strike, Monday 4 September, workers at the Cambridge site will picket from 6 – 7am, while workers at the Crayford site will picket from 6 – 7.30am. The strikers and their supporters will then come together outside Parliament at 10.30/11am for a rally including confirmed special guests to be announced, including Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell. Stay posted for details of what will be happening after the rally. We are asking for maximum support possible with banners and supporters gathering at the rally, and for local activists and anyone who can to show their support at picket lines where possible too.

Outside London, we are calling for solidarity protests/leafleting at McDonald’s stores in localities. For guidance for solidarity actions on the day, a model motion etc read more on BFAWU Fast Food Rights website which the NSSN is part of

Ireland: crane drivers are back on the pickets (21 Aug) – A site on North Wall Quay is the latest major construction project in the city to see strike action. UNITE crane drivers have a picket in place, bringing construction to a halt as part of a campaign to get better pay. The Construction Industry Federation (CIF) is warning the action could end up costing 1.5 million euro a week if it continues.

Sellafield bosses’ crackdown as workers prepare for industrial action ballot in pay dispute (17 Aug) – Hardline bosses at the Sellafield nuclear reprocessing plant are turning the screw on the workforce, as they have banned workplace meetings to discuss the current pay dispute, Unite said. The union, which is preparing to ballot its 2,000 members for industrial action over a ‘completely unacceptable’ 1.5 per cent pay offer, said that the management’s action showed that it was ‘slavishly kowtowing’ to the government’s harsh polices on pay restraint. Unite also disputed the claim by Sellafield Ltd – a Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) company – that it was imposing the pay offer next month  as ‘the majority’ of the nearly 11,000 workforce were in favour. Unite said that its own calculation of the figures of the three unions balloted – Prospect and the GMB are the other two – known acceptances of the offer came in at just 18 per cent read more

Doncaster bin strikes averted for now (22 Aug) – Planned refuse strikes in Doncaster due to begin tomorrow (Wednesday 23 August) have been called off after a last minute pay offer was agreed. However Unite has warned that further industrial action is likely if an agreement is not reached with the private contractor Suez over proposals to make over 100 of the 250 strong workforce redundant. The workforce will receive a two per cent increase backdated to April 2017, a further 2.7 per cent increase from September 2017. Workers will see their pay further boosted with an additional 2.7 per cent increase earmarked for March 2018 brought forward and paid from September 2017. The overall pay increase means that workers will be on average £1 an hour better off. It was further agreed that during the lifetime of the contract the workforce will receive an annual pay increase equal to RPIx. The redundancies are linked to a new refuse and recycling contract tendered by Doncaster council, which is due to begin in April 2018. Unite is determined to minimise job losses and an absolute red line for the union is that Suez removes the threat to make workers compulsorily redundant. It has been agreed that talks will begin at Acas on Friday (25 August) to allow for detailed negotiations to take place read more

Strong support for Sheffield jobcentre strike (18 Aug) – A week of strike action by PCS members at a Sheffield jobcentre protesting against its closure has received strong backing from members and supporters. Our members at Eastern Avenue jobcentre began a 2-week strike, until 25 August, on Monday (14) as part of the PCS campaign to protect services for unemployed, sick and disabled people. Only 2 workers who are not PCS members have crossed the picket line which has been well supported each day meaning the service at the jobcentre has been greatly reduced. There has been support from fellow trade unionists and passers-by throughout the week. Unite Community Chesterfield has produced a short film about the Sheffield strike. The walkout follows week-long strikes in June and July

31 August: join PCS Home Office, MOJ and HMRC payday protests (18 Aug) – PCS is holding protests across the UK on 31 August calling for the 1% public sector pay cap to be scrapped on the day that the Home Office and Ministry of Justice plan to impose the cap for another 12 months. On 31 July, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) imposed the cap on employees for another 12 months. Just four weeks later on 31 August, the Home Office and MOJ plan to keep the 1% cap on their own pay award. This means that by 31 August, 3 of the largest departments in Whitehall will have delivered yet another real-terms cut in pay to their staff. Seven years of pay restraint, including the ongoing cap, have been highly damaging for many public sector workers read more

Sheffield City Council Plan To Impose Four More Years Of Misery On Workers (Aug 16) – Members have had enough and simply cannot believe that a Labour Party leader is taking further measures to slash terms and condition of hardworking employees. GMB has criticised Sheffield City Council’s plan to impose four more years of pay misery on workers. The authority intends to continue with their current pay strategy which, if it goes ahead, would see workers’ pay and conditions cut for the 12th year running. As well as the real terms pay cut imposed by the public sector pay cap, Sheffield council workers would have their annual incremental pay increase slashed and would be forced to take extra unpaid leave.

Community Memorial for the ship Ciudad de Barcelona 1937 – The International Brigadistas came from across the globe in the late 1930s to stand alongside Republican Spain in the civil war, united to stop the rise of the fascist far right. On 30th May 1937, the Ciudad de Barcelona, a ship bringing around 300 brigadistas from France, was sunk by a fascist torpedo just off the coast of Malgrat de Mar, Catalonia. We want to create a memorial to honour both those brigadistas and the local people of Malgrat de Mar and we believe the best way is by bringing the local and international communities together once again.
