Appeal for support from Shelter workers.

The Socialist Party received the following appeal.
Dear Shelter Supporters,

As you may already know, Shelter works are returning to strike action this week.

Following our strike action in March, Shelter management agreed to return to talks at ACAS, where they made a revised offer to staff.

This offer, far from resolving the dispute, poured oil onto troubled waters. Further details can be found in the attached leaflet.

Union members were balloted on whether to accept or reject the offer. It was made very clear that in order to improve the package on the table, further escalated strike action would be necessary. Members voted to do just that - escalate strike action.

Shelter workers will be on strike across England and Scotland on Thursday 24th and Friday 25th April.

We have timed our action on 24th to coincide with the NUT, PCS and UCU strikes on the same day. In many locations we will picket our Shelter offices and then join the demonstrations and rallies with our colleagues in the the other unions.

This is a significant week in our dispute at Shelter: the first batch of dismissal notices issued to staff opposing the cuts are due to expire today. Those staff members are being told if they want to continue in their jobs, they have to sign new contracts on inferior terms and conditions.

Please find attached details of our picket lines. Do come along and support us if you possibly can.

Best wishes,
Elizabeth O'Hara
on behalf of Shelter stewards
