Justice for the Canary Wharf cleaners!

15-10-2004 18:56

Samba band craziness
Led by the Samba band, a group of protesters turned up at Canary Wharf today to shout their support for a fair wage for the workers in the Canary Wharf buildings. An injunction had been obtained in the days leading up to the protest by the owners of the Canary Wharf complex to prevent the protest taking place. This may have diminished the numbers in attendance but it did not make the issue, or the protest, go away... As a spokesman for the Transport and General Workers Union said before the protest: "Canary Wharf is home to some of the most successful and powerful banks in the world. But it is content to let its contract cleaners be paid poverty wages, no sick pay, 15 days holiday and no pension. This demonstration will allow workers to show their support for Wharf cleaners."

Abdullah Muhsin and the Iraqi Working Class.

13-10-2004 19:28

While protesting that they oppose the occupation, the IFTU have gone out of their way to drum up support for Iyad Allawi, subvert British trade union policies against the occupation, and urge trade union delegates to the Labour conference to vote for the prolongation of the occupation (which, comically enough, the person responsible manages to deny despite documentary proof being available to all)... who are the IFTU and what is motivating them?
