Janine will lead a workshop about the social model of disability: what it is, why is it important, how to implement and fight for it.
Workers' self-defence starts with getting unionised at work. This section includes material on the trade union struggles and issues I am involved in and/or urge you to support!
Statement by the TUC Disabled Workers' Committee to TUC Disabled Workers' Conference, 18 May 2017:
There will be a general election on Thursday 8 June. Whatever the circumstances under which it was called, it is an opportunity for voters to either reaffirm or change the government.
Forthcoming TUC Disabled Workers' Conference, 18-19 May
The Committee agreed:
Janine Booth, Matt Abbott, Mark Coverdale and Fran Isherwood entertaining the troops - well, pickets - during the latest strike action for a living wage and decent workiing conditions at Hackney Picturehouse cinema.
This is a public service announcement
With Poets on the Picket Line
Know your rights
All three of them
You have the right to strike
Withdrawing your labour is a fundamental principle
So long as you get not just a majority in a ballot
But a 50% turnout and a 40% threshold
This right is brought to you by a government
elected by 24% of the electorate
