We will be hosting a joint Labour and unions event to discuss the issues surrounding the current public sector industrial dispute like job security and the Living Wage. We are very pleased to welcome the Surrey Division Secretary of the National Union of Teachers, Fred Greaves, who will be speaking about the background to the teachers' current action.
The Guildford Labour Party recently passed the following resolution:
“Guildford CLP believes that working people should be respected and paid enough to live with dignity. All workers in Guildford should be able to put food on the table and a roof over their family’s heads. For this reason, we resolve that all employers in our constituency be asked to pay at least the Living Wage to all of their workers.”
A light summer buffet and wine will be provided free of charge. All Guildford CLP and union members and supporters are welcome. Please RSVP as places may be limited.
Bundles of leaflets will be available for volunteers to pick up.
BREAKING NEWS: We are very pleased to announce that our second speaker will be Frank Minal, Regional Organiser for GMB. Frank and our PPC Richard Wilson have previously collected petition signatures and spoken to parents outside Holy Trinity School in Guildford to support teaching assistants.
