Uber strikes, Jock Palfreeman, victimised Facebook cleaners and more

Following on from the previous round-up, a few quick additional updates:

Uber Eats and Just Eats drivers in Dumferline are holding a wildcat strike over pay this week.

On Thursday 23rd, the Cowley Club in Brighton will be hosting a talk by former antifascist prisoner Jock Palfreeman.

Talk with Jock Palfreeman

CAIWU’s fight against trade union victimisation at Facebook continues, with another protest planned for Friday 24th.

The Uber strike planned for Tuesday 28th is now planned to happen in at least eight cities, with events confirmed so far for London, Sheffield, Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Birmingham, and Nottingham.


Separately to the ADCU strike, the IWGB’s drivers union is also organising another Uber strike for October 6th, which will also involve a protest at Uber’s headquarters. It seems that Unite may also be organising protests over Pizza Express’s tipping policy that day, but there’s not many details of that confirmed yet.


In other IWGB news, food delivery couriers organised through the IWGB have organised a boycott of a Dalston McDonald’s over parking issues, and they’ve also published a new survey showing the extent of harassment affecting couriers.

Further ahead, it’s just been announced that the Blacklist Support Group, Shut the Sites and the Construction Rank and File will be holding a joint meeting in Liverpool on Wednesday 20th October.

Finally, busy times for Manchester transport workers – this weekend’s tram strikes have been called off after an improved pay offer was made, but Stagecoach bus drivers in Manchester will now be balloting over pay.

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."
