4 July rally

Virtual rally with Tower Hamlets Unison

Over 400 people joined the virtual rally yesterday organised by Tower Hamlets UNISON in solidarity with workers on strike, against attempts by the local council to impose a detrimental contract undermining their existing terms and conditions. Refuse collectors, not covered by strike call, refused to cross a picket line in solidarity. Strikes are the last resort for workers and in this pandemic, they need our support more than ever. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/jun/30/tower-hamlets-workers-to-strike-over-sack-and-rehire-plan
