HOPE TO SEE POEPLE THERE!
If anyone would like to help with the BWTUC banner this Saturday at the TUC march, the meeting point will be Zone 3 of the march (nearest tube is Temple) along side GMB @ the burger van!
Anyone that comes will get a free bacon butty!
Please let me know if you can help,
On the 8th November we are proud to be putting on a night at the trade union pub, the Bread and Roses in Clapham, to mark both 30 years since the Miner’s Strike and to build unity with current struggles like the dispute in the NHS.
Those who have been to a Militant Entertainment event at the Bread and Roses before will know that you can expect a night of highly-charged energy and a chance to celebrate the spirit of solidarity.
Headlining we have the Clones, fronted by Steve North from London’s Burning, Meeting Joe Strummer and Warhorse amongst others, and backed by various faces that you may well recognise from tv and stage. They will be playing a set of covers ranging from the Ramones, to the Ruts and the Clash.
Supporting will be Dirt Royal, a young band from Brighton, drenched in the sweat and social commentary of the early Jam. They won’t disappoint.
Comrade X, yep that’s me, will be doing the old Woody Guthrie meets the Angelic Upstarts mash-up and the Lone Groover completes the card with his unique blend of Dylan, Strummer and Bragg. We will also have some special guests lined up for the night.
It’s free to get in but we hope to raise a few quid for the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign by selling a bit of merch and if anyone wants to donate to the nights costs any surplus will also go to the Orgreave comrades.
All we are asking you to do is spread the word, a flyer is attached and there is a facebook event page here:
Hope to see you there,
For Militant Entertainment
BWTUC SUPPORTING THE WORKERS AT ST GEORGES HOSPITAL TODAY ON THE PICKET LINES

LOCAL GOVERNMENT AND SCHOOL SUPPORT WORKERS PAY STRIKE SUSPENDED
The three unions which represent more than 1.5 million workers in local government and schools – UNISON, GMB and UNITE – have today decided to suspend strike action planned for 14 October and consult their members on new proposals put forward by the Local Government Association as the best achievable by negotiation.
The proposals cover the period from 1 April 2014 to 31 March 2016.
In doing so, all three unions have made it clear that they want to strengthen the collective bargaining machinery covering local government and schools and move quickly to jointly tackle important issues facing their members with the Local Government Association. Members covered by the National Joint Council for Local Government have the lowest pay in the public sector and have suffered significant attacks on their conditions of work in recent years.
The unions will now move forward together to consult their members.
“The London Hazards Centre is holding a meeting on Tuesday 21 October to discuss the latest issues affecting health and safety - and what needs to be done to counter the government’s promotion of a business agenda that aims to cut-back health and safety law and regulation. People attending will be invited to help shape London Hazards Centre’s campaigning activity over next two years.
You are most welcome to come along and participate. See the flyer for details on how to get to the venue form Farringdon Station. Registration starts at 5:40 pm and refreshments are provided”.
Many of you will be familiar by now of the route which TUC demonstrations take from The Embankment to Hyde Park but some of you may not so I’ve attached a map of the route to this message. The march forms up from 11.00am. There is a ‘short’ march for those who do want to or are not able to walk the whole route. This forms up from 11.30am on St James’ Street (A4) off Piccadilly just past St James’ Church and before Green Park. All the information about the demonstration and the Britain Needs a Pay Rise Campaign can be found at the TUC websitehttp://britainneedsapayrise.org/
If you, or a member(s) of your group, have special mobility requirements and need to use a vehicle you must inform the TUC by Friday, 10 October so arrangements can be made. Again all information on accessibility is on the TUC website http://britainneedsapayrise.org/march-logistics/accessibility/ .
See you on 18th October
