Lobby Croydon Council on Monday 18 October

Croydon UNISON is calling on as many members as possible to Lobby the above meeting where questions are to be asked in respect of the Employment Based Cost Review proposals (Croydon Council's plans to attack the conditions of service of their staff inspired by the troublemaking schemes of the national local government employers).

The branch rightly feel that it is extremely important that the Councillors know of the depth of feeling amongst staff in relation to how the proposals will affect them. This is the opportunity for Croydon employees to show how you feel about your Terms and Conditions of Employment. The branch are calling for the biggest possible turnout and urge members to attend if possible. They will be bringing the Branch Banner and other unions will be in attendance.

Other groups who have concerns about the impact of cuts in the Community will be supporting a demonstration at the same time.

Lobbyists will be gathering outside the Town Hall Steps, Katherine Street at 5.30 pm, in time to lobby Councillors before they begin the Meeting at 6.30 pm.

This assault upon UNISON members in Croydon is of relevance to all UNISON members and I hope that as many members in neighbouring boroughs, hospitals and colleges as can get along to Katherine Street at 5.30pm tomorrow will do so. Labour Councils need to be pledging that they won't join in any attacks upon the conditions of service of staff!

Croydon residents can also download a letter from the branch to send to their local Councillor.

I hope to see you there!
