Nottingham Protest Against Council Redundancies
Nottingham City Council is pursuing a strategy of making mass redundancies, whilst claiming that this has nothing to do with their recent loss of large amounts of money in the Icelandic banking collapse, or other current and recent mistakes and mishaps.
Below is a communication from the Unison branch about the anti-redundancy campaign. I heard the other day about one worker who is close to retirement and being made compulsorily redundant, with all that entails, despite him being one of the most experienced and useful members of staff and without there being anyone equivalent to replace him at the moment. The Council workers are fighting to defend not only their jobs, but the level of service to the public.
Please ask your friends, family, colleagues etc to join our campaign to defend jobs and local services by;
1. Signing the attached petition or the epetition and encouraging others to do so. The link to the epetition is:
2. Write to Nottingham City Councillors and Nottingham MP's protesting about the cuts in jobs and services. Templates for letters will be forwarded to you shortly, together with bullet points to raise at MP's surgeries.
3. Join the protest on the 9th March between 1pm-2pm at the Market Square in Nottingham.
