(en) Britan, SolFed picket Poundland 15th December + Picket in Holloway during the national day of action against workfare

Date Tue, 18 Dec 2012 10:35:12 +0200


Sat, 15/12/2012 ---- Boycott workfare workfare Newcastle Poundland ---- A great turn out again to all that turned out for today's anti-workfare picket at the Clayton Street branch of Poundland - a big thank you and well done to all that took part. See you all next time! ---- Anyone wishing to help in SolFed's anti-workfare campaign should get in touch via the contact page ---- Picket in Holloway during the national day of action against workfare Sat, 08/12/2012 ---- workfare Islington Superdrug Argos ---- The struggle against workfare continues. As a part of the national day of action members of the North London SolFed picketed several shops around Holloway. ---- As the stores coped with increased demand, Christmas season traditionally meant opportunities for temporary work in retail. This is changing.

Under the guise of work experience, businesses increasingly take on benefit claimants instead. For today’s picket we chose shops where we heard this was happening. We started at Superdrug and later moved to Argos. We held pickets outside, where we engaged with customers. We also went to the shops and talked to staff – if we don't stop workfare together, it may replace their jobs too.
Workfare is hurting all of us, workers and those unemployed. Paid work is increasingly replaced with unpaid forced labour. It's an attack on us all. We press on with our message to the bosses – workfare has to stop.
