3 COSAS CAMPAIGN
Very pleased and honoured to announce that MAGDE and JASON will be coming to introduce the latest film on the outsourced workers (cleaners,security,porters,caterers) at the University of London. Having won the London living wage, sick pay and increased holidays through a militant campaign of strike action, the 3 Cosas campaign now faces more battles – not just a struggle to get their union, the IWGB, recognised, but a struggle to stop around 50 cleaners being made redundant. Come and hear how they’ve got this far, and what sort of solidarity they’re going to need for the next stage.
It’s as dangerous as fracking – it’ll mean deaths in the almost exclusively working class areas where it’s happening – it produces up to 50% more carbon emissions than coal – it’s destroying vital hardwood forests – it’s displacing entire communities – and it’s not being reported anwhere. Members of the campaign group BIOFUELWATCH will be coming to explain why burning wood as biomass in British power stations is so dangerous, and what we can do about it.
