BTUC Emergency Rally Sunday 20th December 2020 supporting the porters in dispute at Heartlands in Birmingham

Birmingham TUC is inviting you to an emergency zoom rally in support of Unison members who are porters at Birmingham Heartlands hospital. They have been taking industrial action for a number of weeks to protect their terms and conditions. These key workers, who were there for us all during the Covid pandemic ensuring one of our local hospitals delivered care to everyone who needed it, will disgracefully heard last week that they will be sent “fire and hire” letters by management over Christmas.

Key speakers will include:
Claire Breeze (speaking on behalf of the Heartlands porters)
Mandey Buckley
Ravi Subramanian (UNISON)
Howard Beckett (UNITE)

As a trade union movement across the city and region we have to come together to show University Hospitals Birmingham management that they cannot behave like this and that the workers have our full support.

Please join us on Sunday at 5pm at this link:
