Hull: Defend Tony Smith!

Trade unionists will be outraged by the dismissal of Tony Smith at an FCC company disciplinary hearing. His appeal hearing is on 15 September.

Tony is a Unison union activist and was sacked for 'gross misconduct', but in reality he has been victimised for trade union activities.

All of Tony's fellow drivers at the FCC waste disposal plant at Wilmington agreed that Tony made a correct health and safety call, but this was ignored in a blatant stitch up by management. Tony led the successful strike two years ago which won sick pay rights for 2,500 FCC workers up and down the country.

Hull Trade Union Council will be protesting outside the site and we will be trying to organise more extensive action to coincide with Tony's appeal.

Please send messages of support to Tony Smith c/o Hull City Unison, Town Hall Chambers, 39 Alfred Gelder Street, Hull, HU1 2AG or email via [email protected]

Mike Whale, chair, Hull Trade Union Council

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.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

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 click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
