Please don’t stop demanding better!
Whilst the mainstream news outlets think we’re really interested in watching the Conservative Party choose which member of the government that has been driving the cost-of-living crisis should be Prime Minister next…
…we are busy demanding better. Please don’t stop. I went down to Hastings Station today to talk to the train cleaners who were picketing there last month.
Churchill have not made an offer to the cleaners, and have taken very little part in discussions but soon, the workers will have to ballot again for their strike. Now here’s something I didn’t know – when a union has balloted their members for strike action, they are allowed six months before they have to ballot again – but their employers are not obliged to make an offer, or make any significant effort to negotiate a solution, within that six months. This really underlines to me how important it is that we keep turning up to support all the workers in the Demand Better campaign, keep talking, and keep writing about it. It’s the only way we’ll force the bosses to address the cost-of-living crisis.
Please keep Demanding Better!
After talking to the cleaners, I went down to the town centre, where local Unite Community members had cards ready for citizens to write to their MPs about the cost-of-living crisis.
What do you find you can’t afford, now? Most MPs really have no idea how the rising rents and bills are affecting people. Please write and tell them!
Keep Demanding Better!
See you on a Demand Better demo or picket line somewhere, soon.
