Subject: Thanks for Your Support and Lobby Appeal Hearing Tues 15 July
Brothers and Sisters
My heartfelt thanks on behalf of myself and the CWU Pell and Bales Section to all of you that have protested against my victimisation. Our well-attended monthly meeting last week unanimously agreed to continue the campaign to reverse management's decision to sack me, a decision clearly motivated by their desire to halt our successful union drive.
The letters of protest have been fantastic. It means that Pell and Bales management know that their attacks on our union are not going unnoticed and it also shows workers in the call centre that there are serious forces outside of us involved in this fight and this does raise their confidence. But we could do with more, so please encourage fellow workers andfriends to send them:
Please send a message of protest to Pell & Bales CEO Karl Holweger!
Write to email@example.com Please cc:firstname.lastname@example.org
Send messages of solidarity to Pat - email@example.com
I would ask at this stage that you hold off on contacting the charities directly as yet. We will advise you as to when we would like to you flood the likes of Cancer Research, Oxfam, etc with letters.If you have done so already, not to worry.
My appeal hearing is on Tuesday 15th July.We will be holding a lobby outside Pell and Bales offices on this day:please bring union banners and delegations if you can: details are:
