Deadline is 4 July - apply today to help vulnerable workers fight back!


iPhone : Yes! Come one and all & join IWGB in this fight. It's obscene that members of this club ( including billionaires and 'A listers' ) pay over £1,500 in annual membership fees while ignoring that they're served by workers on poverty wages. #HaveTheyNoShame twitter.com/IwgbSec/status…

iPhone : Join the protest 5HertfordStreet this Friday 7:30pm
As part of our pressure the club has raised 35p per hour in hope that the workers desist from campaigning but the workers are not dissuaded by this and will keep fighting until their demands are met!👇

TweetDeck : CASE POSTPONED: The £1m holiday pay claim against TDL has been postponed.

We will be announcing new dates shortly.

This proves that flexibility & worker's rights are not mutually exclusive, and that if workers organise, they can win. #Solidarity twitter.com/iwgbunion/stat…
