FAO All outsourced workers: ‘Our Work Matters’ – TUC Training and Lobbying Event – 15 June, London
RMT has been working with the TUC in developing a new campaign – ‘Our Work Matters – Justice for outsourced facilities workers’.
15th June is International Justice Day for Cleaners and Security Guards, which is held each year in memory of a group of Los Angeles janitors who were beaten up by the police during a peaceful demonstration against their contractor.
To mark this day, the TUC is organising a one-day free training event combined with an opportunity to lobby key politicians on the need for insourcing and fair pay for facilities workers.
The day will run from 9.30am to 3.30pm and the programme will include interactive workshops with inspirational union reps and members sharing practical advice and insights into how they ran successful workplace campaigns.
Members will also have the opportunity to meet, hear from and lobby some Labour politicians directly, making the case for a Labour government to insource public services.
Please bring this to the attention of your outsourced members and encourage them to register now online here: https://www.tuc.org.uk/events/our-work-outsourced-workers-connect
Let’s make this event impossible to ignore.
