Our NHS and Social Care in Crisis

healthtogetherThis is a campaigners’ conference to update and share information and experience from the fight to defend our NHS
against cash-driven cuts and privatisation.

Most of the conference time will be workshop discussion on a range of topics including: Working with local government; Building alliances; Defending rural health care; Fighting for mental health services; Building campaigns for social care; Challenging STPs/CEPs/ACSs/ACOs – what works? Fighting for safe staffing and safe
services; Fighting privatisation; The Naylor Review and the great land grab; Reversing Lansley’s Health & Social Care Act; Raising the pressure to bust the cap on NHS pay.

Working with trade unions and health workers. Campaigning for democracy and accountability in health care. Conference information packs for every delegate: share and learn from local campaigns across the country: Join the coalition of forces determined to defend and restore #ourNHS. Theresa May’s government has no mandate for cuts and
privatisation: let’s make sure plans that lead to these are stopped, dropped and abandoned.

SERTUC Race Relations Committee: A Tribute to Jayaben Desai – Monday 2 October 2017

Date and time of event: Mon 2 Oct 2017 – 18:00 to 20:30Picket-007

This event is hosted by the SERTUC Race Relations Committee in conjunction with GMB.

As one of the sacked women workers employed by Grunwick, a film-processing firm based in north London, Jayaben Desai fought for better pay, conditions and dignity for workers in 1976 and 1977, on behalf of 137 sacked and poorly paid Asian women. At first she and her fellow workers were not in a trade union, but after a visit to the Trades Union Congress, she and her work mates joined Apex, which is now part of the GMB. Their struggle was supported by Brent Trades Council.

This was the beginning of a legendary battle for trade union rights, it was to become a watershed for British trade unionism and Jayaben Desai was to become an inspiration to a generation of trade unionists, and beyond. Famously, she told her factory manager, “What you are running is not a factory, it is a zoo. But in a zoo there are many types of animals. Some are monkeys who dance on your fingertips. Others are lions who can bite your head off. We are those lions, Mr Manager”. Jayaben Desai, union activist was born 2 April 1933 and died 23 December 2010.

This Black History celebration event will feature Jayaben Desai’s struggle and will allow some prominent modern day trade unionists to describe how she helped to shape their views and working lives. Kamaljeet Jandu will explore lessons for unions from that struggle in meeting the ongoing challenge of ‘organising migrant workers’ today. There will be plenty of time allowed for contributions from the audience.

Guest Speakers include:

Betty Joseph, Chair, SERTUC Race Relations Committee and NUT

Megan Dobney, SERTUC Regional Secretary

Tim Roache , General Secretary, GMB

Kamaljeet Jandu,  National Equality Officer, GMB

Taranjit Chana, GMB London Region 

Margaret Greer, National Officer, Race equality, UNISON

Gail Cartmail, Assistant General Secretary, UNITE
