Support our Firefighters!

06/12/2014

Solidarity with Firefighters’ 24 hour strike

Starting 9am Tuesday 9 December 2014

Support FBU pickets at firestations across Sussex

Defend Firefighters against “No Job, No Pension”

Preston Circus_13.11.13_2

For over a year now firefighters have been striking against Coalition attacks on firefighters’ pensions and the reckless cuts to the Fire & Rescue Service – cuts happening nationwide, not just across Sussex.  Please stand together with firefighters as they take action again on Tuesday 9 December 2014.  Support picket lines outside fire stations in East and West Sussex.

Hastings firefighters say Save Our Fire Service!

Hastings firefighters say Save Our Fire Service!

We are seeing continued huge and reckless cuts to Fire Services in both East and West Sussex and across the country.  The FBU reports that central government funding has been cut by over 20% under the Coalition, with more than 5,000 frontline firefighter jobs cut in the UK since the Coalition took power in 2010.  This jeopardises the Fire Service’s ability to deal with floods and all major incidents.  Firefighters perform over 100 rescues a day, including 4,000 people annually from fires.  That level is similar to a decade ago but cuts mean that the average response time to dwelling fires in England is now almost two minutes slower than two decades ago, while response times to road traffic collisions have also slowed substantially.  We say: Save Our Fire Service

Picket outside Eastbourne Fire Station, 4 November 2014

During 2014 Sussex has been battered by storms and flash floods, including the tail-end of hurricane Bertha.  We have seen the resulting travel chaos on road and rail, plus numerous major fires, most notably the devastating blaze on Eastbourne Pier.  Why doesn’t the Coalition recognise the work of the Fire & Rescue Service during floods, give it statutory responsibility to deal with flooding and the necessary funding?  Rather, the Coalition continues to cut Fire Service budgets and force through an increase to firefighters’ retirement age from 55 to 60, with plans to reduce a key firefighter fitness standard from 42 to 35 VO2.  Such a drop in fitness of nearly 20%  will put everyone’s lives at risk in the emergency situations when we most rely on our rescue services.  Do we want to test whether crews of 60 year old firefighters could have coped with 2014 in Sussex?

Coalition plan for firefighters

We now have Cameron’s third Fire Minister in four years,  but Tory MP Penny Morduant has carried on as before by dissembling to the FBU leadership, trying to ignore firefighters’ elected representatives and issuing misleading press releases, rather than entering into a constructive dialogue to settle this dispute.  The responsibility for next week’s strike, as with earlier strikes, lies entirely with the Coalition.  Please support the FBU’s Hands Off Our Pensions campaign.

Firefighters picket outside Crowborough Fire Station, 1 November 2014

Firefighters picket outside Crowborough Fire Station, 1 November 2014

Recently Morduant met with Brighton Tory MP Simon Kirby but discussed only roads – not the reckless cuts to East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service, which will particularly hit emergency cover in Hove, Brighton & Hastings.  Still only 1 Sussex MP is among the 260 MPs to have signed EDM454 to defend firefighters’ pensions.  Keep urging your MP to sign up until the deadline of 11 December and also ask MPs to support Labour’s call for a parliamentary debate of this Early Day Motion.  You can also ask your local councillors to pass an emergency motion in support of local firefighters in their pension dispute.

Clear message from Preston Circus firefighters, 31 October 2014

Firefighters remain united and determined.   Please show firefighters your support by standing with them on FBU picket lines at local firestations, sending solidarity messages and posting support on social media.  Firefighters are there for all of us, providing fire and rescue services in the most dangerous of conditions, whenever needed.  This is routine for firefighters, who are deeply committed to their local communities and do not take strike action lightly: “People do not become firefighters to become rich…(but) to serve the public, to put other people first, to risk their lives to save others” Simon Herbert, Chair, East Sussex FBU.

On Tuesday 9 December, please make an effort to show firefighters your appreciation and support.  If you cannot attend a picket at your local firestation, please ensure that you have supported the FBU campaign Justice for our Firefighters by signing the petition calling on East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service to pay the compensation due to the families of Brighton firefighters Brian Wembridge and Geoff Wicker, who were killed at Marlie Farm in 2006.  It is nothing short of a scandal that East Sussex Fire Authority members allow ESFRS management to continue to contest this case despite damning court judgements.

Battle_01.11.14

Picket outside Battle Fire Station, 1 November 2014

Remember, an attack on workers’ pensions is always the first step of a government preparing to sell-off a public asset, as private companies do not want the open-ended liability of paying staff pensions.  Cutting a service to the bone is the second step – in an attempt to persuade people that the service could be better run privately.

Please support firefighters’ picket lines during this 24 hour strike from 9am Tuesday 9 December to 9am Wednesday 10 December 2014.  The Fire Service is facing huge cuts under the Coalition.  We must stand together with firefighters now to defend our Fire Service.  This must include demanding the reinstatement of firefighter Ricky Matthews, who was sacked by Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service for participating in the last strikes.

Fair Pay For NHS Staff

Support striking NHS staff 

7am – 11am, Monday 24 November 2014

Bzumtt9IAAAa4HW

Members of  British Association of Occupational Therapists (BAOT), the GMB, Managers in Partnership (MiP), the Prison Officers Association (POA).  the Royal College of Midwives (RCM), the Society of Radiographers (SoR), the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians (UCATT), Unite the Union and UNISON working in the health sector are striking from 7am – 11am in protest at a third year without a pay rise.   NB: The Society of Radiographers is striking from 8am to midday.

SCoR

Following this NHS staff will only work their contracted hours as they participate in industrial action short of strike action throughout 24-30 November 2014.  Members of the Hospital Consultants and Specialists Association (HCSA) and the British Dietetic Association (BDA) will also be taking part in the week of action short of strike action between Tuesday 25 and Sunday 30 November 2014.

13.10.14 Midwives RSCH

NHS workers are seething over low pay.   Their pay has been frozen for four years and they have been denied an independently-awarded 1% pay rise, yet MPs are taking an 11% pay rise on the grounds that it has been awarded to them independently.  This is rank hypocrisy when MPs are already on high salaries while many NHS staff are low paid and earn below the Living Wage.

BzzrUpLIQAIbsYT

 

1 in 5 NHS workers have taken second jobs and half say they can’t get through to the end of the month without relying on debt. Two thirds of NHS workers have cut back on food, 51% have reduced their energy usage, 44% have cut back on transport, 80% went without holidays and 90% had to cut back on leisure activities.  Shocked?  This is unsurprising when UNISON calculates that there has been a 8-12% real-terms fall in NHS salary levels since 2010 and no above-inflation pay rise since 2009.  If you need to hear more, NHS workers have explained why they are striking and UNISON members have a bit more to say.

UNISON no pay cuts, save our NHS

We encourage everyone to send messages of support to members in all the unions involved in the week of action, either as individuals or from your own union branch, workplace, Labour Party branch or other labour movement organisation. Those on twitter can tweet support to: @GMBPressOffice@unisontweets, @unitetheunion@MidwivesRCM@SCoRMembers, @UCATTunion,   and others.

Still The Enemy Within

8pm, Saturday 1 November 2014

The Electric Palace, 39a High Street, Hastings TN34 3ER

Still the Enemy Within

“I can’t express enough my admiration for Owen Gower’s remarkable film. It moved and inspired me and it renewed the anger we rightly felt at the British state’s waging of a civil war against the miners, their families and communities. What’s extraordinary is that it reclaims such vital memory and places it in the present-day. The same principles are still to be fought for. Everyone – not only in Britain – should see this superb film.”  John Pilger, journalist

Watch the trailer for this award-winning documentary, then book your tickets straightaway to avoid missing out on this second Sussex screening of Still the Enemy Within.  Those who saw the film in Brighton on 20 October were very impressed, with the only disappointment being that the film barely mentions the brave Kent miners and the very active Kent miners’ wives.  However, it remains excellent viewing and is highly recommended by all who saw it.  Make sure you see it if you get the opportunity. 
Still the Enemy Within
Discuss key issues for the Left at these interesting events in Hassocks, Hastings and Brighton.  And don’t forget it’s the LRC’s national conference in London on Saturday 8 November 2014.  Stop press: Liz French of Betteshanger Women Against Pit Closures will be speaking – and you only have to take a look here to see what a live wire she is!

1889 striking dockers

All are welcome to attend this public meeting organised by the Hastings Branch of Unite the union to remember the 1889 London Dock Strike.  Together with the Matchwomen’s and Gas Workers’ strikes, the 1889 Dock Strike made trades unionism a mass movement of the working class by extending unions to unskilled workers.  Speakers will include Louise Raw, author of “Striking a Light“, and Terry McCarthy, author of “The Great London Dock Strike 1889” and a former Director of the National Museum of Labour History.  There will be plenty of time for debate plus the organisers have promised that anyone who can sing can contribute!  If you aren’t familiar with the White Rock Hotel, it’s easily found on the seafront adjacent to the White Rock Theatre, opposite Hastings Pier.   More information is available from hastings@untetheunion.org .

Hear former Health Secretary and Camden Labour MP Frank Dobson, together with local nurse Laura Mofatt at this public meeting hosted by Hassocks and Hurstpierpoint Labour Party, and chaired by Purna Sen – Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Brighton Pavilion.  Laura Moffatt started out as a nurse, became a Crawley Labour councillor and then Crawley’s Labour MP from 1997-2010, before deciding to return to nursing.  Laura says: “Having spent 13 years in Parliament supporting the Labour Government to rebuild our NHS, I have returned to Nursing Practice and can now see first hand the destruction and waste of the Tories reorganisation. Every day I see that this top-down ‘reform’ benefits few apart from the private health industry.” Adastra Hall is only a 10-15 minute walk from Hassocks railway station, so this public meeting can be easily reached from all over Sussex.  All are welcome but you may want to arrive early to enjoy the refreshments and grab a seat.

Britain Needs A Pay Rise!

This post lists Sussex and London actions to support through to Monday 20 October, so do keep scrolling down!

Support striking NHS staff – Monday 13 October 2014

Bzumtt9IAAAa4HWMembers of GMB, the Royal College of Midwives (RCM), Unite the Union and UNISON working in the health sector are striking from 7am – 11am in protest at a third year without a pay rise. They will be joined by PCS members working in the NHS Pensions Agency.  Following this NHS staff will only work their contracted hours throughout 13-17 October 2014.

This is the first industrial action over NHS workers’ pay in over three decades and the first in the entire 133 year history of the RCM. Quite rightly, NHS workers are seething over low pay as their pay has been frozen for four years while they see MPs now being awarded an independent pay rise they were denied.  How can MPs be given 11% on top of already high salaries while NHS staff are denied a 1% increase for mostly low paid jobs?

We condemn the Coalition’s plan to use army and police vehicles in place of ambulances during the strike, in London and other parts of the country although not, so far, in Sussex. Emergency service workers are always prepared to make adequate cover arrangements during industrial action but the government has ignored the possibility of talks in order to spread alarm and so distract from its own poverty pay agenda.

Please support health workers at local Sussex pickets from 7am-11am, which have so far been advertised at these Sussex NHS facilities:

This dispute is separate to the suspended national action by local government workers, so please don’t forget to support these workers when they strike on Tuesday.

This meeting will make key recommendations to Brighton & Hove councillors regarding totally unnecessary plans from the Green and Tory Groups to privatise two local NHS services – the ICES community equipment store, which provides vital equipment to assist in the care of patients at home, and the Substance Misuse Service, which has done so much to reduce deaths and treat alcohol and drug addiction in the city. Please come along to show your opposition to any privatisation of NHS services.

 

Wednesday 15 October – Support striking civil servants

 

PCS banner at Bob Crow funeral_03.14 cropAs PCS members take strike action, please show solidarity at local picket lines. These are likely to be outside job centres, DWP offices, tax offices, courts and other public offices where many PCS members work.  Officially labelled “civil servants”, PCS members are mainly low paid and are struggling to survive after a seven year pay freeze.

PCS has contributed to The Great Pay Robbery booklet recently published by the Trade Union Coordinating Group.  This booklet examines the factors which are contributing to the squeeze on real incomes of the majority of earners, and recommends what can be done to remedy this. Did you know that some PCS members have seen their take home pay plummet 20% in real terms as a result of pay constraint and additional pension contributions?  Meanwhile, the collective wealth of the 1,000 wealthiest Britons rose by £70 billion in the last year alone – enough to give every working person in the UK a £2,000 pay rise.
