Shelter staff ask for support

Shelter staff are still in dispute with management over cuts to pay and conditions. Their union was willing to conduct meaningful negotiations at ACAS. But Shelter senior managers issued a derisory new offer which merely tinkers with their previous package of cuts. This has enraged union members, many of whom have lost more in strike pay than they are being offered in compensation.

Union members are now being balloted over this latest insulting offer and they need to build their strike fund.

They are asking trade union branches to donate: Please make all cheques payable to 'Shelter Strike Fund' and send them to: Shelter Stewards, c/o 48 Swindon Close, Gorton, Manchester, M18 8JQ.

Contact shelterstewards@googlemail.com for a speaker at your meeting.

Send messages of support to union members in Shelter: shelterstewards@googlemail.com and c/o Alan Scott, T&GWU, Woodberry, 218 Green Lanes, N4 2HB.

Send messages of protest to Shelter's senior management team: Please send hard copies and emails to Adam Sampson, Shelter, 88 Old St, London, EC1V 9HU. adam_sampson@shelter.org.uk .

Ask that it be forwarded to the Board of Directors and copy it to Shelter stewards at the above address.

Pass resolutions supporting stewards and condemning these attacks.

Write to your MP raising concerns about the attacks on Shelter staff pay and conditions and the organisation's core values, and ask them to sign the Early Day Motions in both the Scottish and Westminster parliaments: Westminster EDM - number 1016 entitled 'Shelter and its staff' and Scottish EDM number S3M-01475 entitled 'Solidarity with Shelter Workers'.
