Janine giving a speech at the Sussex Labour Representation Committee (LRC) fringe meeting at TUC Congress 2015. The subject of the meeting was fighting austerity and defending trade union rights.
TUC Disabled Workers' Committee
I was elected to this Committee in 2013 and each year since. The Disability section of the TUC's website is here.
At Congress House, London
1. Protesting against attacks on disabled people. The Tories are intensifying their assault on disabled people's rights, particularly access to benefits. I will be circulating information about protests and other events in and around London. Please look out for these and encourage members to take part.
First meeting of the newly-elected Committee - planning the almighty batle we face to defend and extend disabled workers' rights.
As we wage the fight of our lives against Tory government attacks on disabled people, it may seem that discussing “models” of disability is an irrelevance, a distraction, a waste of time.
Speaking, chairing, listening, debating, and performing poetry at the delegates' social.
