Reading Labour council: Stop privatising our leisure services
John Gillman and Terry Pearce, Reading Socialist Party
If the right-wing Labour council succeeds, a private company will be given a 25-year contract to design, build, operate and maintain Reading's sports centres.
The contractor, Greenwich Leisure Limited (GLL), is known for bad pay and terms and conditions (page 7 for Bromley workers' victory against GLL).
It is a disgrace that a Labour council is carrying out this act of privatisation.
A wide range of local community and political groups - including the Socialist Party and Reading Trade Union Council - lobbied the council in opposition to the plans.
To defeat these proposals, we need a mobilisation of all the trade unionists working for the council, along with the Trade Union Council, local union branches, Labour Party members and community activists.
- No privatisation of council services
- No more cuts
- Reading Labour council stop carrying out Tory policies
