TUSC lobbies Miliband in support of Care UK strikers

50 protesters attended a lobby called by the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) of Ed Miliband's Doncaster North surgery this afternoon in support of the Care UK strike.

Around 30 Care UK workers participated and about a dozen of them went inside to discuss with Ed Miliband. They said he was supportive, didn't think Care UK should have been given the contract and was going to speak to Labour mayor Ros Jones about it, but still won't publicly come out in support of the strike.

Doncaster RMT rep Sean McGowan addressed the rally.

We finished off with an impromptu march up and down Bentley High Street which stopped the traffic.

On the same day, TUSC supporters held protests at Care UK offices in London, Southampton, Leeds and Cardiff.
