Bromley library workers walk out over 'insulting' pay offer

Workers at all 14 of Bromley's libraries started indefinite strike action on 28 March over a "paltry and insulting" pay offer.

The strike by the 36 workers comes after the breakdown of pay talks between Unite the Union and Greenwich Leisure Ltd (GLL), which runs the library service on behalf of Bromley council.

Unite regional officer Onay Kasab said: "This is the best response to the Tory anti-trade union laws, a 100% yes vote which smashes the threshold target for turnout but even more importantly says that we will stay out until we win.

"GLL are the worst kind of employer. Appalling terms and conditions, harsh financial penalties for sickness absence and a history of using zero-hour contracts. Unite members are out to win this dispute and will do all that we can to use it to highlight that social enterprise organisations are not a soft option to privatisation."

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.
