Just to update in typical Bromley Council style they cancelled Alan's hearing at the last minute, thanks for all those that came along to his rally, we will keep you posted on the re-scheduled date, in meantime please do keep posting messages of support on his FB page:-
This Saturday there will be leafleting outside Bromley Central Library, 11-1pm, if around please do come along and help, if only for a few minutes, don't forget about the library consultation:-
Finally please see below and attached about the SERTUC Trades Council Conference on 31st October, Kathy is going to be one of the speakers so please register and attend, be good to have a good showing from the Bromley area as we are going to be highlighted.
In solidarity.
Dear Colleague
SERTUC is organising an event for Trades Councils and County Associations of Trades Councils in London, the South East and the East of England, and indeed for trade unionists who would like to work more closely with trades councils, or even begin a new one.
The event will be held at Congress House, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS on Saturday 31 October 2015 from 09.30 (registration and coffee) through 10.00 (start) to 15.45 (finish), when there will be a brief period of refreshments. A working lunch will be provided.
Themes may include:
·         Smart campaigning against cuts in local authority services
·         Stronger unions: lobbying and organising against the Trade Union Bill
·         Reaching out to and defending young workers
·         Making May Day 2016 a day of hope, celebration and protest
We have invited Matt Wrack, General Secretary FBU, to speak in his capacity as Chair of the Joint Consultative Committee between the TUC and Trades Councils, and several other high profile speakers, but there will also be presentations from trades councils and generous time devoted to questions and contributions from participants.
Please join us. Please help publicise and mobilise for this event. Financial support is available for travel for ‘up to two’ delegates from registered trades councils and CATCs. Please see the flyer for details.
Please register at
Telephone enquiries should be directed to the SERTUC Office at 020 7467 1220.
