The Durham TA Lions are calling on the grassroots movement to join them in solidarity in Durham on Saturday 25 March.
Their fight is our fight.
Barnet UNISON will not turn our backs on them.
We will not leave them behind, we look forward to renewing our previous solidarity experience with them at the Durham Miners Gala last year.
The Durham & Derby TAs and Kinsley 3 are disputes we must win.
These workers are showing the rest of us what you can do even in the face of such brutality.
Now it’s our turn.
We will be taking our banner to Durham
Solidarity “Lions of Durham”.
Join the Barnet UNISON banner on what is becoming a seminal demonstration in wake of recent events across the globe.
Last week at our branch executive meeting our reps had a report on a number of grassroots struggles taking place across the UK.
I am proud to say that there was no hesitation in wanting to send solidarity messages and donations to these grassroots campaigns. Our branch has been in ongoing struggles for over a decade. We have had tremendous acts of support and solidarity from UNISON reps and members not just in the London region but right across our union. We have learnt the importance of solidarity.
I can say from experience just how valuable it is to be able to read out messages of solidarity from other grassroots members to members on picket lines. It imbues a feeling of confidence that is badly needed when you are under attack.
Here are the campaigns we sent solidarity and or sent donations.
- Kinsley 3 campaign
- Derby TAs
- Durham TA’s
- Glasgow UNISON members: IT workers and Janitors
- Kirklees Social Workers
- Aslef, RMT, TSSA workers
- PCS members working at the Employment and Human Rights Office
“The NHS will last as long as there are folk left with faith to fight for it.”
(Nye Bevan)Barnet UNISON loves our NHS and sends solidarity to all NHS workers.
Our branch will be marching and we are encouraging our community to join us.
The NHS is in a serious crisis and NEEDS our support.
Our branch in its own small way is hosting an event on
Saturday 25 February called “Sing your Heart out 4 the NHS”
It will start off with some NHS workers explaining about the attacks the NHS are facing and why we must join the national NHS demonstration on 4 March

Several of our Barnet UNISON members will be singing in solidarity for the NHS & all of the staff.
The singers will be supported by the Hit n Run band.
It looks like it will be a great night out so why not join us in solidarity for the NHS.
Saturday 25 February 2017, 8pm to 12am
Venue: Midland Hotel, 29 Station Road,
Hendon, London NW4 4PN
After the referendum unite to demand…
No More Austerity – No To Racism – Tories Must Go
Barnet Meet Up : Saturday the 16th of July
11.30am Argyll Street
[Beside Oxford Circus Tube]
& look out for Our Banner.
The Tories have been plunged into crisis by the result of the EU referendum. David Cameron will soon be gone. The Tories will use Brexit to whip up anti-immigrant racism and accelerate their austerity policies and attacks on living standards. George Osborne has already threatened an emergency budget which will hit ordinary people hard.
But it doesn’t have to be this way. The Tories are weaker and more divided than they have ever been. It looks likely that an early General Election will have to be called when Cameron steps down. However people voted in the referendum, we now need to unite and take to the streets to demand an end to austerity policies, to stand up to anti-immigrant racism and show our solidarity with refugees and migrants.
This demonstration, called by the People’s Assembly and Stand Up to Racism, is the positive and united response to the political earthquake on 23 June.
We are not spectators while the Tories fall out. We must make ourselves participants in shaping the future.
We will not let racism grow; we demand an end to austerity.
