TUC Disabled Workers Committee
I was elected to this Committee in 2013 and each year since (except 2020-21). 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.
Janine Booth, RMT delegate and co-Chair, TUC Disabled Workers’ Committee
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.
By Janine Booth, co-Chair, TUC Disabled Workers’ Committee (personal capacity)
