Below is an all too familiar story of how privatisation ruthlessly exploits workers. The company in this case is ISS a global giant that has benefited under Blair, Brown and Cameron at the expense of the workforce.
For those who have not had the opportunity to represent and organise workers, it is heart breaking to see Terms & Conditions which have been hard won, ripped up after privatisation.
My take on what Jeremy is talking about, is that this ruthless exploitation must end. It is condemning workers and their families into poverty.
For me, Jeremy is saying it is for all of us to take part in this social movement that means in the communities we live. In this case we need to support these workers and condemn the attacks on their jobs. I know that Jeremy would give these workers his backing, not only that he would demand these critical services are brought back into the NHS.
Homerton workers protest over job cut threat from private firm
“The staff say they have been told 89 out of 300 of them could be made redundant and others could have their hours cut.
Jordan Rivera, Unison branch secretary for the hospital, slammed the plans and questioned why the company can no longer run the service on a budget it said it could less than a year ago, when it won the contract.”
Three things you can do to help these workers
1. Send a message of support to email@example.com.
2. Like and leave a solidarity comment
3. Share with others and encourage them to offer support.
