FB Event for Updates and pre gig networking https://facebook.com/events/1171761966177869

 

UVW is a small, volunteer run trade union that represents some of the most oppressed and unrepresented groups of workers in the UK, particularly low paid Latin American cleaners. We take on some of the most unscrupulous employers in the country and have won significant victories – we achieve this on a shoestring budget.

 

At the forefront of all our campaigns, including at massive multinationals such as Topshop, is the fight for dignity, respect and a living wage, basic things which employers try so hard to deny workers.

 

However, in early June 2016 we were forced to go to the High Court to defend an injunction that was intended to stop our members fighting for their rights.

 

The case was unjust and posed a threat to basic trade union principles, such as the right to strike and protest against injustice.

We successfully defended our right to strike and protest, and our members are now in their fourth week of the first ever all out strike in the history of the City of London.

 

However, we incurred over £11,000 in legal fees, which will seriously undermine our ability to carry on the vital work we undertake.

 

Please don’t let the cleaning contractors and other oppressive employers silence our union! With your help we can win.

Thurs 28th July : NO TTIP event

https://www.facebook.com/events/1045641552187296/

 

Students Against TTIP UK and Momentum Arts bring you “NO TTIP presents: Party Against CETA!”

TTIP and CETA are shady trade deals being negotiated by the EU. They are the biggest corportae power grabs we’ve seen in decades, and they threaten some of the most important aspects of our society. From public services like the NHS, to workers rights, to our basic human rights, everything is at stake. TTIP and CETA even threaten access to and funding for music and the creative industries.

What’s the best way to fight a corporate power grab? With a big party obviously!

There have been millions of people fighting back against these dodgy trade deals across the world. Thanks to this, TTIP is on the rocks. But its evil twin CETA is threatening to slip under the radar.

Join the movement and party with us to celebrate the success of the fight against TTIP, and rally against its evil cousin CETA. Line up and more info about TTIP, CETA and the event presenters below!

This party is taking place in Lewisham as London’s first and only TTIP FREE ZONE! Hundreds of local councils across Europe have been coming together to declare themselves against TTIP & CETA – and Lewisham is right in there repping London!

Providing support is Dogs Of Riga. No strangers to their local gig circuit, Dogs of Riga will impress with their fun up-beat, rhythmic indie rock to the stage.

 

Luciee Closier Project will be there too. Luciee has received national television appearances and won awards in her hometown of Essex for her quirky voice, perfectly accompanied by her backing band.
