Shelter staff reject measly offer

UNITE members in Shelter have rejected a miserly offer from management that was the outcome of ACAS talks after their initial two days of strike action.

As far as I know no further strike days have been announced yet, but everyone should get behind these members so they have the confidence to win.

They are asking supporters to:

  1. Donate to the strike fund. Cheques payable to “Shelter Strike Fund” can be sent to Shelter Shop Stewards, c/o 48 Swindon Close, Gorton, Manchester, M18 8JQ
  2. Invite a speaker to your meeting by contacting shelterstewards@googlemail.com
  3. Send messages of protest to Adam Sampson, Shelter, 88 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HU or adam_sampson@shelter.org.uk asking for it to forwarded to the Board of Directors
  4. Send copies to letters of protest and messages of support to shelterstewards@googlemail.com
  5. Contact your MP about the issue and ask them to support Early Day Motion 1016 (http://edmi.parliament.uk/EDMi/EDMDetails.aspx?EDMID=35214)
