Fight victimisation at Canary Wharf and Sotheby’s

Just a quick plug for two upcoming events in support of victimised workers.

First, starting at half 6 on Monday morning, construction workers will be picketing Canary Wharf after the sacking of a newly-elected shop steward, and are asking for people to come down, especially if they can act as legal observers. If you can make it, it’s happening from 6.30am outside 25 Cabot Square, Canary Wharf.

Secondly, the United Voices of the World union has been fighting to get four sacked cleaners reinstated at the Sotheby’s auction house. They’ve now got halfway there, but further action is needed to win the reinstatement of the remaining Sotheby’s two. The next step is a protest on Friday 31st at 5.30 in the evening, meeting at Oxford Circus station, United Colors of Benetton exit.

An injury to one is an injury to all. Let’s make sure the Canary Wharf shop steward and the Sotheby’s two win their jobs back as quickly as possible.

About nothingiseverlost

"The impulse to fight against work and management is immediately collective. As we fight against the conditions of our own lives, we see that other people are doing the same. To get anywhere we have to fight side by side. We begin to break down the divisions between us and prejudices, hierarchies, and nationalisms begin to be undermined. As we build trust and solidarity, we grow more daring and combative. More becomes possible. We get more organized, more confident, more disruptive and more powerful."
