CWU

#ENDGAME campaign enters new phase (Dec 14) – The CWU’s fight against BT ‘s plans to outsource its Facilities Services division entered a new phase this week as a fourth week of protests coincided the start of the formal consultation period. With the CWU certain that the proposed TUPE transfer on April 1 of 1,700 CWU represented grade employees to ISS and CBRE presents profound threats to job security and terms & conditions, the first meeting with both companies and BT has done nothing to allay the union’s concerns.

FBU

Firefighters call for review of evacuation procedures for high rise residential buildings (12 Dec) – The Fire Brigades Union gave its closing statement for phase one of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry today, Wednesday 12 December. In a series of recommendations, the union has called for a review of fire service procedures and training, to plan for residents of all high rise buildings to be rescued or evacuated, in the event that ‘stay put’ becomes unworkable. Matt Wrack, general secretary, said: “Before the fire started and any firefighter arrived, Grenfell had been stripped of all its basic fire safety measures, yet we have not even started to examine how that was allowed to happen. We have said from the beginning that it is ill-judged that the inquiry started by looking at the night of the fire, rather than the decisions which led up to it. Everyone will now reflect on what has been learned since that night. We can be certain that firefighters deliberately put their own safety at risk time and time again, in order to save lives. We are horrified that so many died and, like the bereaved and the local community, we want to see major change to provide justice and ensure this cannot happen again.” Read more

IWW

No Union Busting, No Poverty Pay! Solidarity with the UberEats 5! – On Monday 03/12/2018, five UberEats drivers at the Hanworth McDonalds in London received calls from UberEats telling them their agreements had been cancelled. The reason for this appears to be an incident the previous week when drivers in the area refused to work in response to the pay boost being dropped from 1.6x to 1.1x (The pay boost is the multiplier which is added to the low base pay rate per delivery they receive and is what drivers rely on to make the work pay)  This amounts to a reduction of about 60%. Local McDonalds managers complained to UberEats and this resulted in the terminations. A spokesperson for the London IWW – the union organising workers in the area – states: This makes a mockery of UberEats’ claim that drivers are independent contractors free to choose their own working time.  When the drivers come together to take a stand against poverty pay, Uber treats them the same way that greedy bosses have always treated their workers- by attacking their organising efforts and firing them read more
