Senate House London Living Wage Campaign - Mass Rally a Great Success

More details will follow soon, including more photos, but I just wanted to briefly report back on the rally last Saturday, which was a fantastic success. We filled the lecture theatre at SOAS not just with representatives from across the Bloomsbury unions, student groups and NGOs, but with workers from across the University of London, many of whom spoke of their own experiences of working in their current low-waged environments.

It was great for everyone to come together and see how many people were in the same position, and how much support there was for the campiagn both inside and outside the University of London. The event was trilingual, with translations to and from Spanish and Polish, and it was great that the opportunity was taken to publicise further UNISON's new programme of English lessons for contract workers.

Frank Dobson MP spoke, and pledged to support in any way he could the campaign to pay the London Living Wage at Senate House.

Senate House London Living Wage Campaign

Stop Press: The meeting will be addressed by local MP and supporter Frank Dobson.

This Saturday 9 July UNISON Senate House are organising a launch for the campaign for the London Living Wage for outsourced University of London employees.

We're hoping for a big turnout from the workers themselves, many of whom are now members of the branch, and it would be great if other University of London employees could come down to help and show their support.

The event starts at 11am at SOAS - we're in room G2, but if you just come to the main entrance we can show you where to go.

Any questions, just let me know - or 07783 719479.
