Protest Against ‘Supermayor’s’ Attack On Trade Unions – Sat 12th Sept, Mansion House, Doncaster

September 8, 2009


There is a call on Facebook for people to attend a protest against Doncaster’s ‘Marmite (i.e. sticky & smelly!) Mayor’, Peter Davies, on Sat 12th Sept 11am till 1pm outside Doncaster’s Mansion House. The text from the facebook page says it all…

On the 7th September 2009 Doncaster UNISON branch secretary Jim Board was suspended after giving an interview to Channel 4 news in defence of children’s services in Doncaster.

The very same day Mayor Davies gave a press conference, in which he condemned the public sector union, and appealed for workers to join the union affiliated to HIS own party – ‘Workers of England’.

With massive attacks planned by the Mayor the public sector services and the equality agenda in Doncaster, Jim Board and UNISON would be at the forefront of fighting for jobs and the services of the most vunerable sections of our community; making this attack no more than an effort by the mayor and senior council management to remove opposition to their plans, and to clearly attack the trade union movement.

This is not acceptable.

As a response a demonstration in support of Jim Board and against the Mayor’s divisive attempts to undermine trade unions has been called. This is part of the Mayor’s overall assault on public services and the equalities agenda in Doncaster – and we must show him this is unacceptable.

Please ivite as many people as you can and lets make this as loud and defiant as possible as we say NO to the Mayor’s attack on trade unions, public services, and tolerance and diversity in our town.
