Solidarity with sacked BT worker

As already reported in the Socialist, a longstanding Socialist Party member in the Communication Workers' Union (CWU), Clive, has had an appeal against unfair dismissal rejected by British Telecom, confirming his sacking after 38 years of service. This is a message of solidarity to Clive from William Jarrett, North East National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN):

"I've watched with great concern the situation of your sacking from BT. As a Socialist Party comrade, NSSN comrade, and fellow trade unionist, I am alarmed that these companies are emboldened to act in this cavalier manner. Your situation has been discussed in Newcastle branch and several comrades have terminated their contracts with BT as a result, citing your situation as justification. I will continue to monitor the news, and will plan an NSSN picket of BT's local regional call centre. We're with you, brother."

Clive is chair of the CWU Birmingham, Black Country & Worcester branch and is a leading lay rep of the union.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.
