From The Socialist newspaper, 6 February 2019

Backing for the Birmingham homecarers

Birmingham's homecare workers could lose up to 4,100 if the Labour council cuts their hours. Over 80 people attended the Trade Union Congress solidarity rally for the striking workers on 29 January.

Birmingham Socialist Party members handed out a bulletin linking the struggles of the home carers and the Birmingham's bin workers, who are starting strikes against the council soon.

Socialist Party and National Education Union national executive member, Nicky Downes, said: "This is a further attack on those that are the lowest paid, the hardest workers. Workers who work the longest hours or hours that are socially difficult. It's an attack on all those that rely on these services."

Anthony Downes, Birmingham Central Socialist Party
