Unite out and about on camera
Unite members at London lettings firm Goodlord, who have been on indefinite strike action since February after the company decided to fire and rehire them on vastly inferior pay and conditions, protested outside Goodlord’s headquarters on May 25.
Pictured is Callum Howell, a Unite member and Goodlord worker who was sacked for refusing to sign the new contract, alongside fellow colleagues and Unite members Tahrid Kabir and Kathleen Baldwin.
In a fire and rehire campaign night-time twist, Unite projected messages in London, including on the Houses of Parliament, highlighting the insidious employment practice that Unite GS Len McCluskey has described as ‘ripping through our workplaces like a disease’. Unite is now campaigning for an outright ban of fire and rehire contracts.
DOCTORS SAY NO
Doctors in Unite (DiU) GPs and health campaigners were out in full force in April at a demo protesting the takeover of London GP practices by an American healthcare company. The protestors targeted the headquarters of Operose Health, a subsidiary of US healthcare giant Centene Corporation, after the company recently took over 37 GP practices in London.
