From The Socialist newspaper, 2 September 2015

Workplace news in brief

Hungry for justice?

On 16 September the Bakers' union are holding a Fast Food Rights National Organising Day hosted by the Trade Union Congress. The organising day is an opportunity for fast food workers, union activists and community campaigners to find out more about the Fast Food Rights campaign. See www.fastfoodrights.wordpress.com for more.

Probation action

Unison members working for the National Probation Service in England and Wales will strike for a second time on 14 September. The three-hour strike will be followed by two and a half weeks of action short of strike, with members working strictly to their contracted hours.

Pay aspiration

On 1 September Aspire Housing maintenance workers in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffs, took strike action for the fifth time against plans to dismiss workers and re-engage them on worse terms and conditions. Please send messages of support to sbaker@ucatt.org.uk or by text to 07845893607

National Gallery

As the National Gallery strike goes past 70 days, Union rep Candy Udwin's sacking is upheld but anti-privitisation petition tops 120,000! Keep supporting the indefinite #NationalGallery strike.
