CWU Conference News: Union still doesn’t get the message on workfare at Royal Mail!

As part of our rolling campaign against workfare, members of Wessex Solidarity, Bournemouth Uncut and B.P.A.C.C. leafleted members of the Communications Workers’ Union outside their Conference in Bournemouth; both on Sunday and today, ahead of the vote on Bristol branch’s Motion 26 Category A which reads as follows:

This Conference agrees that the Postal Executive will cease all involvement in the Royal Mail Work Experience (as outlined in the letter to branches 012/12) and notify Royal Mail of this immediately after the close of conference.

The Postal Executive is instructed accordingly.

Incredibly the motion was defeated! More detailed report to follow from our journalist comrade on the inside…

The fight goes on.

Solidarity callout from residents of Brighton and Hove – make a stand against racism and fascism: Oppose the March for England.

”We, as Brighton and Hove residents, are calling on all communities to oppose the spread of racist and fascist ideas under the banner of ‘March for England.’ Harangue, mock and disrupt the march. Line the route. Gather in groups along Queen’s Road, from Brighton station to the Clock tower at 11am. Together we will drown out their message of hate.”
