Mandating vaccination is a bad idea. Some will be unable to take the vaccine due to health or pregnancy reasons. But let's face it, this isn’t really about vaccine reticence but the Govt's unwillingness to set Statutory Sick Pay at an acceptable rate.
GMB members at British Gas aren't just standing up for themselves, but for all workers who could be subjected to fire and rehire threats. It’s time for the government to act and outlaw this terrible practice. Thanks for your solidarity @KimJohnsonMP
No worker takes the decision to go on strike lightly. British Gas workers have now been on strike for 43 days – defending themselves against shameful fire and rehire tactics. Thanks @DawnButlerBrent for the support.
Starting off negotiations with the threat to fire and rehire all your workers is not exactly a brilliant public relations strategy. More and more MPs calling out British Gas for their behaviour today. Thanks to @SarahOwen_
Our members have led the fight against fire and rehire by standing up to bullying at British Gas. The government need to sort out the mess of our laws that allow this to happen. Thanks to @KateGreenSU for your support today.
.@AngelaRayner has always been on the side of working people and she’s backed our members in British Gas from day one. From the picket lines, to the rallies to the Labour Conference platform. Thank you for your continued solidarity.
