Janine proposing a motion condemning deaths of autistic and learning disabled people in care, at TUC Disabled Workers' Conference in May 2019.
On 21 March this year, an inquest ruled that the death of Colette McCulloch was avoidable.
Colette was thirty-five years old when she died. She was autistic, and in a hostile society, she had become mentally unwell.
Following on from the week-long course earlier this year, new reps get together for a follow-up week's training.

This is Janine's speech seconding the motion on the Trade Union Act at TUC Disabled Workers' Conference 2019. The motion was passed unanimously.
RMT welcomes PCS’ motion and its focus on electronic balloting. Our amendment extends this discussion to the rest of the Trade Union Act and to the rest of the anti-union laws.
Under UK law, we can not take lawful industrial action except in so-called ‘trade disputes’:
Every year we send our tribunes
to knock upon the golden door
and take our just demands there with them -
place our claim, our case for more
The masters let them ask and close
their eyes and sigh that times are tough -
They can't afford to share with those
who made their wealth; there's not enough
