Palestine – Coventry City UNISON members hear more about the Reality.

Standard

Coventry City branch members were invited to our Branch Committee meeting on Thursday 20th September to hear about an important campaign that the branch supports.

Members heard from Rachel, a UNISON member, who gave an update on the Working With Villages in Palestine campaign. This is a campaign that the branch agreed to continue to support.

Working With Villages in Palestine supports the establishment of sustainable projects in local communities in Palestine, that enable vulnerable people develop positive initiatives that build self-reliance, self-esteem and community endeavour whilst living in an extremely challenging situation.

The campaign is committed to raising awareness of the conditions under which Palestinians live and the daily problems they encounter. 100% of funds raised is spent in Palestine.

Protest at the Tory Party Conference

Victoria Sq, Birmingham | 29 September| 11.00am

Ahead of the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham, join thousands of ordinary workers as we march to call time on failed austerity and instead to campaign for a new deal for working people.

Our message could not be clearer. There is an alternative:

  • We need a minimum wage of £10 an hour, now.
  • Ban those exploitative zero hours contracts.
  • Fund our NHS and public services properly.
  • Repeal the trade union act which makes it harder for us to stand up for working people.
  • Crack down on tax dodgers who starve our schools and hospitals of funding.

Together – we can build a growing economy for the many not the few. Together – we can nurture a society free from sexism, racism and discrimination. And together – we can win the New Deal working people are crying out for.

Let’s get to it.
