LabourStart: A call for help – from my own backyard (UK)

A call for help – from my own backyard
This week’s message is going to be very brief and to the point.
Workers employed in care homes in north London (UK) have been told by their
employer — a private company called Fremantle — that their wages are being
cut by 30%, their hours are being increased, their sick pay will be a thing
of the past,  and their pensions are being reduced.
Their union, Unison, is calling for an international campaign of support for
those workers.
I actually live in north London, so this campaign is taking place in my own
If you live in the UK, you should be concerned that privatized care homes
are treating their workers this way.  If you live anywhere in the world and
work in the public sector, you should be concerned because this could happen
to you next.
It will take you only a few seconds to fill in your name and email address
and to send a strong message to the chief executive of Fremantle.  If we all
take the time to do this, we can flood her inbox today with thousands of
messages from all over the world — and we can turn this around.
I know that I can count on you.
Please visit our campaign page now.  And please do pass this message on.
