Please show solidarity with Barnet Homes Resident Caretakers, some of whom have been employed by their company for 30 years.
Sign the petition
Stop the decision to remove service tenancies from Barnet Homes resident caretakers, forcing them to accept a flexible tenancy, and possible eviction from their homes and a vast increase in rent for their accommodation.
We the undersigned petition Barnet Council to publicly declare its
opposition to The Transatlantic Trade and Investment
Partnership (TTIP), and to write to the Secretary of State for
Communities, London MEPs & the Local Government Association
raising concerns about the impact of TTIP on local authorities
The EU & the USA are currently negotiating the goods and
services to which TTIP will apply. There is no impact
assessment of effects on local authorities, and no scrutiny of,
or consultation on, the negotiating texts by local governments
or bodies representing them.
The proposed Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) requires
disputes to be settled in secret courts outside the British
judicial system and allows no appeals. It has been used by
corporations to overturn democratic decisions by local
authorities. TTIP could stop councils trading with local
businesses, as investors could challenge government actions
they consider harmful to their investments
The London Borough of Barnet refused to allow this petition:
