Statement in support of striking Derby School Support Workers

If you are Labour Party member, affiliated trade unionist or Socialist Society member, or Momentum member, please sign below.
Thank you

We, the undersigned Labour Party members and affiliated trade unionists, support the Derby school support staff, members of Unison, in their campaign and industrial action against pay cuts of up to 25 percent.

We call on the whole Labour Party and labour movement to show solidarity with the school support workers. We call on Labour’s NEC to send representatives to sit down with Derby’s Labour council and urge them to reverse the conditions imposed on their workers.


Move this motion at your Party or affiliated union organisation
