NSSN 396: Come to NSSN Conference this Saturday!

July 5, 2018 in Bulletins

 

The 2018 National Shop Stewards Network Annual Conference is from 11am-2.30pm this Saturday July 7th in Conway Hall – 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL.

The attendance fee is £6 and it is open to all trade union and anti-cuts campaigners. Affiliation letter and conference appeal letter is here  Facebook event

NSSN Conference meets in the week when the NHS reaches its 70th birthday. Like all other public services, it is under siege from Tory austerity. NHS workers are taking strike action in the North West and are in dispute in Yorkshire. Council workers in East Dunbartonshire in Scotland are taking action and PCS is in the middle of a national strike ballot on pay.

There are many other disputes, which are covered every week in this bulletin, from the 2-year long fight by the RMT against Driver Only Operation to strikes by a new generation of workers in McDonalds and TGI Fridays and by mainly migrant workers against outsourcing in the University of London.

The NSSN Conference is an opportunity to hear, meet and discuss with some of the best fighters in the union movement – from militant leaders and rank and file reps and activists. Come along this Saturday to be part of fightback.

 

The conference will finish in time for people to watch the England vs Sweden World Cup match at 3pm. As a result, we have had to re-jig the agenda. We will be showing the match in the venue. There are also plenty of pubs nearby. Because of the tighter agenda, we encourage attendees to bring a packed lunch. There is also a café that will be open until 2pm.

Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey welcomed this decision of the union’s Executive Council:-

“Unite really is a fighting back union. In an age when the Tories have dished out brutal austerity and employers have felt on the front foot. I am proud of the fact that virtually every week, in some part of the country, there will be a picket line or protest decked out in Unite flags and banners. The NSSN is often there standing shoulder to shoulder with us. It plays an important role in getting the word out and helping to build support and solidarity when a hostile Tory media is attacking us for defending our members. I spoke at the NSSN rally at the TUC in September alongside our striking binworkers from Birmingham. I look forward to our union developing a relationship with the network for the benefit of our members.”

Unite Assistant General Secretary Howard Beckett is speaking at the NSSN Conference on July 7th

PCS

The National Shop Stewards Network gives full support and solidarity to the PCS who voted at their recent annual conference to move to a national strike ballot on pay that opened on June 18 and closes on July 23rd

Government caught breaking yet more promises on pay as PCS writes to Minister (3 Jul) – PCS has accused the government of “arrogance” after Cabinet Office Minister David Lidington failed to honour his commitment to respond to union demands to withdraw the civil service pay guidance remit. Minsters released pay guidance for government departments in the civil service and related areas last week without consulting unions. In a letter to Mr Lidington, general secretary Mark Serwotka demanded the minister consult with the union properly and lift the pay cap imposed on PCS members. Mr Serwotka’s demands on pay have been echoed by other civil service unions, Prospect and FDA in an unprecedented show of unity read more

Win on pay in Highways England (29 Jun) – PCS members in Highways England’s Traffic Officer Service have voted overwhelmingly to accept a pay offer that smashes the government’s 1% pay cap. PCS members working as operators in regional control centres (RCCs) and as traffic officers on the UK strategic road network have voted to accept a pay offer that will see their pay rise by 9.8% and 3% respectively, with corresponding rises to shift allowances. The deal also includes a £750 allowance for experienced staff who carry out formal on-the-job coaching duties read more

Union reacts to Esther McVey apology in parliament on Universal Credit (4 Jul) – PCS reiterated its call for the roll out of Universal Credit to be halted following the minister’s apology. Esther McVey was forced into a humiliating climb down today when she apologised for misleading parliament over the controversial issue of Universal Credit. The Work and Pensions Secretary said she had “inadvertently misled” the Commons by claiming that the National Audit Office (NAO) had called for the roll-out of the Universal Credit benefit to be accelerated read more

 

Unite

Unite announce strike days on Total’s oil and gas offshore platforms (5 July) – Unite the union has today (5 July) announced a series of strike days on the North Sea oil and gas platforms operated by Total E&P. Following the overwhelming mandate for industrial action, there will be a series of 24 hour and 12 hour stoppages on the three platforms affected (Alwyn, Dunbar and Elgin), all of which will be forced to cease production. There will also be a continuous ban on overtime commencing at 00.01 hours on 23 July. The dispute concerns the company’s wage review and its plans to force workers to increase their offshore working time. A report by Robert Gordon University identified that workers on three-week, equal-time rotas were nearly twice as likely to experience ill health as those on two-on-two-off shifts. The three on/three off rota pattern is now worked by 56 per cent of the workforce offshore, compared with just 17 per cent working the same pattern in 2007.

24 Hour Stoppages

  • Starting at 06.00 hours on 23 July, 6 August and 20 August.

12 Hour Stoppages

  • Starting at 12.00 hours on 30 July and 13 August read more

Unite target TGI Fridays restaurants with nationwide protests (3 July) – Happy 4th July, now keep your hands off staff tips. Unite and ‘fair tips’ campaigners will be targeting TGI Fridays restaurants, tomorrow (Wednesday 4 July) with over 30 demonstrations planned nationwide to protest the company’s unfair tipping policy and refusal to talk to the union. The fourth of July or Independence Day in the United States is a big day of celebrations for the American-themed restaurant chain, which Unite will help mark with protests in all regions of England and Wales, and also in Glasgow. Workers at four TGI Fridays restaurants have already taken four days of strike action over consecutive Fridays (from 18 May to 8 June) in a dispute over exploitative work practices and a tip policy change which is costing low waged waiting staff around £250 a month in lost wages. In January, waiting staff were given just two days’ notice that 40 per cent of their card tips would be cut and redistributed to kitchen staff, in lieu of a pay rise for this latter group of workers read more read more   Tweet support to @RwUnite

Today (Thursday 28 June), Unite announced that Tower Hamlets council had brought forward an agreement with GLL to pay those aged 18-20 the LLW from this September, with pay backdated to April this year.

Likelihood of Hackney parking chaos increases as peace talks collapse (28 June) – The prospect of residents in Hackney north London, becoming mired in a parking meltdown next month has dramatically increased after peace talks brokered by the conciliation service Acas collapsed yesterday (Wednesday 27 June). The dispute involves 40 traffic wardens employed in Hackney. The workers are members of Unite, the UK’s largest union, are employed by private contractor APCOA Parking (UK) Ltd, on an outsourced contract tendered by the council. Strike action has been called for six continuous days beginning on Monday 9 July at 00:01hrs and ending at 23:59 on Saturday 14 July. With no traffic enforcement, motorists will be able to park where they choose. Residents face the prospect of not being able to park outside of their own homes, despite having paid for the privilege, with no redress. The dispute concerns a pay claim for a five per cent increase from April 2018, unfair and discriminatory working practices, which includes: unfair implementation of sickness procedures, unfair implementation of holiday allocation and a demand to enhance the long service award. The Acas talks collapsed yesterday (27 June) after APCOA refused to discuss pay, citing they needed first to discuss the issues with the client Hackney council. Unite regional officer Onay Kasab said: “Time is fast running out if these strikes, which will cause traffic and parking chaos throughout Hackney, are to be avoided read more

FBU

Firefighter strike in West Midlands over new contracts on hold for now (28 June) – Firefighters in the West Midlands have called off planned strike action after the fire service employer agreed to halt the introduction of controversial contracts for new entrants, the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) has said. However, the union said the development did not mean that the industrial dispute was over but that progress in negotiations had been made. Matt Wrack, general secretary of the FBU, said: “The recent dialogue between the union and West Midlands Fire Service has been fruitful but there are still many issues to deal with in order to bring this dispute to a close. The union only considers strike action in the most serious of cases. There is a huge strength of feeling among firefighters and emergency control operators that these contracts would have done huge damage to the service.” The contracts would have meant new entrants into the service would have had to take on work outside the agreed role of a firefighter. It would have allowed the employer to unilaterally change the work of firefighters at any time, thereby breaching nationally negotiated agreements with the union. Strike action would have been taken between 30 June and 4 July. Earlier this year a ballot saw 90% of firefighters and emergency control operators agree to strike action on an 82% turnout read more

Unison

Bin workers take strike action after talks with Kirklees council collapse (4 July) – In an ongoing dispute from the end of last year, Kirklees bin workers are now taking strike action from 3-9 July. This comes after talks between local government trade union Unison and Kirklees council have collapsed, after a lack of control of senior staff by the council. Industrial action was avoided in June pending the results of an investigation into bullying and racism, going back to November. During that time the operations manager at the centre of the claims was told to work from another site. However this manager failed to respect this request and continually went to the main Vine Street facility that services Huddersfield, attempting to intimidate staff, according to Unison officials. This culminated in a lead shop steward being told that he should be working on trade union business full time and should no longer complete the round he has done for the last 20 years. This was quickly seen for what it was, an attempt to remove a steward from work colleagues and to distance workers from their trade union representation. The lead steward promptly refused, leading to management ordering him to go home! The final straw came as last-ditch efforts were put into a meeting between Unison officials and Kirklees council management at conciliation service Acas read more from ‘The Socialist’   Kirklees Unison website

This will be the fourth period of industrial action taken by UNISON members who work in roles including portering, cleaning and catering. The trust’s plan to outsource nearly 900 staff to a private limited company, WWL Solutions Ltd, has already seen strikes on 23-24 May and 8-10 June, plus a five-day strike from 28 June to 3 July. Staff are striking to protect their terms and conditions and the living standards of future generations of hospital staff, and to keep the NHS team together read more
