Tower Hamlets Council – which is a Labour run authority – is planning to ‘sack and re-engage’ its entire workforce in order to force them to accept worse terms and conditions.
‘Sack and re-engage’ is what Asda did to its workforce before Christmas. British Airways is doing it to its worekrs now. It is shocking to see a Labour run council deploy the same tactic.
The new plan, called Tower Rewards, includes:
– Out of hours pay is reduced
– Severance pay has been slashed
– Reduces the Flexi scheme
– Worsens pay for some grades
– Staff being asked to work anywhere in the borough with little notice whilst travel allowances are being cut.
There is an online rally being organised by Tower Hamlets UNISON on Friday 3 July at 11am – register online here https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/friday-3rd-monday-6th-tower-rewards-strike-virtual-picket-and-rally-tickets-110797373928
We will stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Tower Hamlets UNISON and other unions resisting this awful attack on their working conditions.
One thought on “Solidarity with Tower Hamlets workers!”
Thank you, Lambeth Unison, for communicating Labour run Tower Hamlet Council’s proposal to carry out Tory continued austerity policy. A Labour council prepared to implement Government ‘savings’ in local authority spending on public services. This Labour Council’s proposed cuts to public sector workers pay, terms and conditions must be resisted by all other London Council trade unions, London CLPs , local service user pressure groups and other labour movement organisations. Welcome model resolution to see off the pro market initiative,Tower Rewards.
