GMB UNION URGE LABOUR TO LISTEN TO PEOPLE THAT MATTER

GMB union urge Labour to listen to those that matter

Cities and regions such as Liverpool, Manchester, Bristol and parts of Yorkshire where Labour has flourished because of the attitude of the local party activists and leaders.

GMB union Regional Political Officer, Neil Smith, urges Labour to listen to the people that matter.

Austerity, Brexit and lies shifted people to the right

Lessons for Labour page one: Let’s get back to our roots. Return to our original reason for existing. Listen to the people who matter, those who voted Atlee, Wilson and Blair into power in search of a New Jerusalem in this green and pleasant land.

ELECTION TIME TO PLACE X AND SELECT POLITICAL SERVANTS

GMB union prepares for Election to select public servants VOTE LABOUR

We need a lot of action and will need to campaign and demand extensive changes.

It’s election time soon and we all have the chance to place an X against a name and party to select our political servants, Thursday 6 May 2021.

Many MPs and councillors appear to have forgotten that they are here to serve the public. They are supposed to be Public Servants - it’s in the name - but not always in the practice.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS, HUNGER AND POLITICS

GMB union Free School Meals Campaign

We are fighting back as a union and are campaigning for example in Northern Ireland this week for the politicians to look at changing from provision of sandwiches to hot meals for school children in the province.

The Free School Meals Campaign. Hunger and GMB union politics

There has been a massive and welcome backlash against Tory intransigence over the issue of Free School Meals, with social media and much of the mainstream media questioning the decision to vote down a motion to provide for children in England during school holidays.

FROM RED WRAGG TO JUST BULL

Neil Smith, GMB union Political Officer, union politics

The NRG members have, on more than one occasion, suggested that the government has fallen into that fatal trap of making national decisions based on a London-centric view with London data.

From Red Wragg to Just Bull

There is an old Chinese curse which says:” May you live in interesting times” and it applies to all of us right now. Interesting to say the least and strange in many ways as the Coronavirus comes back in a second wave and we are also being told “by the way prepare for a No Deal Brexit”, with all the mayhem and damage that will bring. Strange things are happening every day.

COVID 19 BAME COMMUNITY AND THIS GOVERNMENT FAILINGS

GMB union says government is failing

Their most obvious failing has been anything and everything they do that is associated with the Coronavirus

Neil Smith, GMB union Political Officer says ''Government is obviously failing, on Covid 19 and BAME commmunity''

Let’s be honest we could not have a worse Prime Minister and government - maybe other than Donald Trump - in charge of our future.

They are guilty of so many failings, either through incompetence or their lack of care for the majority of people in this country. Their racism is obvious. - Just look at the Home Office approach to immigration and the Windrush scandal.
