Press Releases

Home Carers To Challenge Compulsory Redundancies - Oct 2010.pdf


 

Barnsley Branch News

GMB were represented when Barnsley TUC reps assembled at Cudworth Fire Station to greet Firefighters as they walked out on Friday Oct 31st to begin 4 days of Strike action in their battle against Tory pension attacks.  Under proposed pension changes, firefighters will be expected to work a further five years until they are 60.  If they fail to achieve fitness standards and have to retire earlier, they could lose up to half of their pension or face the sack.

N30 Strike Day

Our Public Sector Strike of November 30th was a great success.  It was a historic day. Britain ’s biggest strike since 1926 saw two and half million public sector workers out.  In Barnsley pickets were out from 5.30am and were solid, well attended, and full of good spirit and determination.  On the TUC Demonstration in Barnsley 500 marched and the GMB was well represented.  The Branch Secretary then spoke at a Town Centre Rally.  Some of us also went through to Sheffield to join a Regional March of many thousands

Demo at Tory Party Conference Manchester 2nd Oct 2011

GMB Barnsley members joined over 35,000 people who marched on Sunday October 2nd in a magnificent show of strength.  Workers, students, disability activists, pensioners, Labour Party activists, first-time protesters and veteran campaigners united together in Manchester against the Tories. 

The day reflected the scale of resistance the government faces — and the growing determination among ordinary people to fight back. Chants for a general strike were popular on the march. Union leaders and GMB campaigning Remploy workers were cheered for making militant speeches and calling for united action against the government.

On the demo we saw a glimpse of what 30 November, when millions of workers will strike together, could look like. Strikes by millions of workers on the day could shut down Britain. Demonstrations in towns and cities can bring together everyone who hates the Tories and show the strength of our side.

GMB Barnsley Open New Office

Barnsley Mayor and GMB member Karen Dyson and GMB Regional Secretary, Tim Roache, officially opened the new GMB Barnsley branch office on Tuesday 14th June 2011.  Commenting, Tim Roache said: Barnsley GMB has come a long way and the new office will compliment the excellent service that reps provide to members.” 

The new office can be found at: 8 Burleigh Court, Burleigh St, Barnsley.  GMB Convenor Lee Parkinson say “GMB Members employed by BMBC can ring 01226 772980 any time for advice or representation. 

However, when I’m not in the office or in meetings with the Council I’ll be out in the workplaces meeting members and dealing with their issues so just leave a message and I’ll get back to you”.
Also pictured is GMB organiser Paul Wade.

Solidarity at Barnsley Demo

GMB Barnsley reps joined UCU Barnsley College staff and students on Saturday 18th June in solidarity in the fight to protect jobs.  Massive cuts have been announced with 25% of all teaching staff across the college facing the axe. Compulsorily redundancies are being threatened even though voluntary redundancies and retiring staff have met the required level of jobs to be lost. 

Teaching staff have had to go through a demoralising and humiliating process of being interviewed for the jobs which will remain; those who are unsuccessful may be offered a ‘Zero hours’ contract which would require the same amount of work for a significantly lower wage, and would not guarantee work for more than a year. 

This has come as a devastating blow to workers in the college but they are determined to fight for their jobs and for the continued provision of high quality teaching which cannot be delivered with less staff as even more students are due in the academic year to come.

 

May Day Celebrations

On the Saturday before the internationally recognised workers holiday of May Day, Barnsley GMB activists were in town talking to shoppers about the benefits of joining the GMB and giving out GMB balloons.

The morning event organised by Barnsley TUC and supported by other trade unions was followed by a Love Music Hate Racism festival in Peel Square where local bands performed for free getting across the message that Barnsley is NOT a racist town and the BNP are not welcome here!

 

Barnsley Delegation Make Their Voices Heard

On Saturday March 26th, 42 GMB Barnsley branch members took part in the biggest trade union demonstration Britain has ever seen. It was an incredible sight. Well over half a million people marched. Banners, placards and balloons filled the streets.  We marched behind the branch banner with GMB flags, whistles and vuvuzelas blasting out.  Workers came together and for more than five hours the magnificent demonstration, organised by the TUC, weaved its way from the Embankment to Hyde Park.

Branch Secretary, Henry Rajch, said: “The Tories are waging class war. The bankers should pay for the chaos they’ve caused not us. I was on the poll tax demo 20 years ago and know protests can make a difference. Everyone who marched knows how big the protest was and are now more confident to take further action than they were before the demonstration. I’m proud of the GMB today. We had a huge turn out and looked great with the sea of orange and black GMB banners and flags on display. We now need to get all the unions together and take joint action to get rid of this government.”

GMB lead the way at Barnsley demo

Saturday, December 11th, protesters in Barnsley took to the streets in a demonstration, organised by the TUC, against the Tory/Lib-Dem government cuts programme.

GMB reps and members joined with regional secretary, Tim Roache, in protest against the government’s plans to cut services across the whole of Barnsley, which would have a devastating impact on communities.

In his address to the protestors, Tim Roache said: “The unjustified public sector cuts being made by this government would devastate many people’s lives.  The private sector would not be able to offer jobs to those being made redundant as this government is claiming.”
GMB will continue to be at the forefront of the campaign in opposing the cuts and we urge all of our members to be in London on March 26th 2011 to attend the TUC national demonstration against cuts.”


 

Sheffield Rally Against The Cuts

GMB Organiser Paul Wade (Centre) was at a Rally in Sheffield on Saturday 23 Oct 2010 organised by the TUC in protest at the cuts being brought in by the Con-Dem government.  Barnsley branch rep, John Garside is second from the right and branch secretary, Henry Rajch, is next to him.
Around 1,000 people were out in the rain to hear speakers, including GMB regional secretary, Tim Roache.  He spoke about multi-millionaire George Osborne’s spending cuts which will leave millions of ordinary people without vital services and drive up poverty and inequality.
  
At least half a million public sector workers, who provide key services, will lose their jobs.  For people on benefits and those already in poverty, life will get harder. Disabled and ill people will have money snatched away. 
The message from Sheffield was we must organise a serious fight-back against these policies and cuts.


 

Barnsley Branch Protest Against Con-Dem’s Spending Review

...GMB Barnsley branch reps and members were in Barnsley Town Centre protesting at the Con-Dem government’s public sector spending review issued on Wednesday 20th October 2010. GMB oganiser, Paul Wade and Barnsley branch secretary, Henry Rajch were among the speakers addressing the 250 assembled crowd of workers and students. 

In Barnsley we estimate 600 jobs will go this year from the Council with up to 1,400 going over 4 years.  120 Home carers are to be sacked and 27 staff are losing their jobs due to the closure of Greenside House Residential Home. Further announcements on job losses are to come.  1,500 letters warning those at most risk of redundancy have gone out so far and many of us are very worried for our jobs.

If you would like further information on any aspect of the current situation or would like to join the GMB ring the GMB Barnsley Office on 01226 772980.


 

Taste of Cultural Diversity

....GMB Barnsley B12 branch had a stall at the town’s Taste of Cultural Diversity Day held on Sunday, September 26th.

Now in its eighth year, the festival is Barnsley’s landmark event within the town’s cultural calendar celebrating the communities and individual cultures that live in the borough

At the Continental Food and Music event branch activists talked to passing GMB members and non members about the importance of being in a trade union that fights in the interests of workers from all sorts of different backgrounds and handed out GMB shopping bags for people to take home.


 

Egyptian Coffee Morning

Barnsley GMB branch secretary, Henry Rajch, was among the guests at an Egyptian Coffee Morning, which was organised by the Barnsley Egyptian Society Mediators (BESM) on 18th September.

He handed a cheque for £50 to BESM as a donation from the GMB.  The event was officially inaugurated by the Mayor of Barnsley, Margaret Sheard.

The morning included traditional refreshments, music and a display of Egyptian memorabilia. There was also fund raising for the victims of the Pakistan floods.

BESM is the official Egyptian cultural and educational community organisation in Barnsley.  It was established in January 2009 by Asmaa Hydes to promote the welfare of native Egyptians who live and work in Barnsley.  To find out more about the work of BESM

Barnsley Branch Members March In Protest

...GMB Barnsley branch members were in Birmingham joining thousands of others protesting in the rain at the Tory Party Conference. 

The Tories are coming for our jobs, our pensions, our services, our schools and our hospitals. So this was an opportunity to start the fightback.  Barnsley TUC organised a full coach from Barnsley which among these travelling were trade unionists, students from Barnsley College and two Labour Councillors. 

Initiated by the Right to Work campaign, the demo was a focus for all the anger people feel against this rotten government.  Some of the other GMB banners on the protest were from Sheffield, Hull and the West Midlands Region.

Events

Peaceful gathering in St Georges Square to express disapproval of plans to close Huddersfield Royal Infirmary A&E. 

GMB Yorkshire and North Derbyshire region stood in solidarity with junior doctors when they took industrial action yesterday in relation to contract changes. The government want to impose a new contract on junior doctors.

Plans to redefine unsociable hours mean doctors will earn less money for working evenings and weekends. They also want to change the maximum number of working hours a junior doctor can work. The BMA are seriously concerned this will put patients’ lives at risk as the doctors will be overworked and tired.

Cath Pinder, GMB branch secretary from Brighouse General Branch, organised GMB support for the Dewsbury Hospital picket-line.  She said: GMB members, local councillors and the public alike felt compelled to come and show support for the junior doctors. We will stand shoulder to shoulder with them in their fight. NHS staff are under constant threat of the downgrading of hard fought for terms and conditions. Junior doctors today, another group of hardworking NHS staff tomorrow; we pledge our support to our colleagues in the BMA."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We♥UNIONS

The 8-14 February 2016 was the Heartunions week of action which celebrates the great work done by union reps and members in our workplaces and in society. We're proud of our unions and reject the government's attempts to damage them with the trade union bill.  In the face of this politically motivated onslaught the TUC organised the week’s events to remind us why our unions are important and how this legislation will damage society.   Brighouse General Branch organised a stall at Dewsbury Market to raise awareness of the anti-trade union bill.

Pictured are Brighouse Branch Secretary Cath Pinder with Paula Sherriff MP for Dewsbury, Jawad Khan, Emily Warrilow and Affaq Butt.

GMB Branch Weekend

Brighouse General Branch sent delegates to the GMB Branch Weekend.   Workshops were held during the day and the conference theme was 'How We Beat the Trade Union Bill'.  A Branch Awards Ceremony took place in the evening with a number of branches honoured for the work they have done on behalf of GMB and its members during 2015.  Sunday morning saw a debate on the EU followed by a Q&A.

Pictured are Emily Warrilow and Aafaq Butt speaking on the Trade Union Bill.

 

GMB activists and members from Brighouse General branch put their 'Hands Around Dewsbury Hospital' at an event held on the 28th April 2016 to raise awareness of the threat to our NHS.

Pellacraft Saves GMB Rep From Dog Bite

shay_boyle_2_thumb.jpg
GMB Chesterfield No 1 branch members Shay Boyle, Colin Hampton and Snowy Bradley were leafletting in Clay Cross one February Sunday morning when Shay was attacked by a dog. He had been pushing leaflets through a letter box when the dog came around a corner and started sniffing about.

Branch secretary Shay said, “I was nervously saying ‘nice doggy’ as you do but when I turned around it flew into a sudden rage started to bark and then snapped at me. I was only prevented from sudden death by the GMB conference bag I carried the leaflets in. I held the bag between me and the dog’s viciously sharp teeth and it snapped at the bag several times before the owner came around the corner and ordered the dog inside.”

Sam Pella from promotional equipment providers Pellacraft commented, “We are so pleased that one of our GMB promotional items was able to prevent injury giving a whole new meaning to GMB@Work!” GMB senior organiser Graham Benton added tongue in cheek, “This is yet another example of the branch’s commitment to campaigning in the community above and beyond the call of duty. It is not known if Colin and Snowy have stopped laughing yet.”

Book Launch

Colin_Hampton_thumb.jpg
Colin Hampton, from Chesterfield No 1 branch, held a book launch at Chesterfield Labour Club, on Sunday 15th December 2013. ‘On the Tramp’ is a 1930’s poignant true life tale of search for employment by Charlie and his mate Joe, in the difficult pre-war years.  Originally penned many years ago by Charlie and printed by Russell Press in 1983. 

Cllr Michelle Booth says:  “I borrowed copy of the book earlier this year and asked Charlie’s son, Robin, if he would consider getting it re-printed so that it can be read by local folk.  We got in touch with Russell Press who printed the original and their help has been invaluable.  Robin Potter of Kingsway, Ilkeston, adds: “My dad would be so pleased to know that the book has found renewed interest and that the sales of it will contribute funds to a worthwhile cause, the Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centre. 

The printing costs were funded by the Erewash Labour Group and has been re-printed thirty years on by the Russell Press and went on sale at THE REASONABLE PRICE OF £5 per copy ALL PROCEEDS will go to the Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centre. 

The Derbyshire Unemployed Workers Centre is an established centre that provides free and independent welfare rights advice and representation, specialist advice and sign posting services. Local councillors call upon their expert help to assist enquiries from local Ilkeston people.  Colin Hampton, from the DUWC, says: “The Derbyshire Unemployed Workers’ Centres tries to give a voice to the concerns and issues facing unemployed people today.  It is a voice that is seldom heard because of the isolation and powerlessness people experience when out of work.  Times have changed but many of the issues faced are still the same.  We are pleased to be associated with the reprint of this book which gives a local feel to a national scandal - the scandal of mass unemployment in a rich society!

Chesterfield Trades Union Council Forming Food Bank

Many food banks are organised by faith organisations and they are to be commended but we believe it is also the responsibility of the labour and Trade Union Movement to offer solidarity to fellow workers who are victims of the ConDem policies. Chesterfield & District Trade Union Council is asking TU branches to donate to the Chesterfield TUC Food Bank as soon as possible. An appeal has gone out to local branches today for money or food donations.  At our branch meeting last night we agreed to donate £50. Chesterfield No. 1 GMB branch is the first to donate and the attached pic shows me after shopping at the Coop and delivering the food bank donation to North East Derbyshire District Offices who are supporting the event. On the launch of the real Chesterfield Food Bank we will be having a demonstration in Chesterfield as food banks should not be needed in a rich society. We will launch our Food Bank Banner saying UNITED WE BARGAIN -  DIVIDED WE BEG

Food Bank Appeal1.pdf


atos_PIC_thumb.jpg

GMB members joined a demonstration outside the Chesterfield base for ATOS Healthcare – the company hired by the government to assess disabled people who may be fit for work.  A mock United Nations Land Rover, complete with flashing lights and several “UN Police” wearing blue berets as well as a “UN investigator” mounted the pavement. The UN personnel and the UN Investigator approached the ATOS office and asked the manager to hear their complaint. Mainly how ATOS treats disabled people. The UN Investigator had a file with evidence of human rights abuse to present to the ATOS management but they were refused entry. Then they marched down to the Jobcentre Plus and although they were able to gain access into the building, management refused to meet them. 

Colin Hampton (GMB), organiser of the event said that more protests will be staged in 2014 as he was hoping for a conference to be held early in the New Year. “Many people in the North Derbyshire area” Colin said “have complained about the treatment at the hands of ATOS”

30TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATIONS

SHAY_BOYLE_thumb_(1).jpg
Young and old hands packed Chesterfield Labour Club on Saturday 19th October for a party to celebrate its 30th anniversary with a  birthday cake and a special poem.  The poem’ The Chesterfield Labour Club Ghost’ was written by Derbyshire  Poet Laureate,  Matt Black and read out by  club member Shay Boyle (Derbyshire Poet laureate for a night). Councillor John Burrows spoke about the club’s beginnings in a building which had been Mormon Church with the first pint being pulled by miners’ leader Peter Heathfield. All staff were volunteers. The club has hosted election campaigns, a women’s action group and many a strike meeting. In its tradition of solidarity, 167 tins and money were collected for Markham Road Food Bank and soup kitchen. Music was provided by Richard Hunter, Acorn Roots, Whiskey Bob and Shaker. Music, drama, poetry, social and political activity continue to feature in the club’s  lively programme


 

TUC Long Service Award

Shay_and_james_thumb.jpg
Pictured is Shay Boyle being presented with his TUC long Service Award by James Eaden at the July trades council meeting.  Shay joined the GMB in 1979 and has also been involved in the Chesterfield & District Trades Union Council for over 30 years.  He was a GMB delegate of the Chesterfield Water branch of Severn Trent Water.  After retiring from full- time work in 2003, he was nominated as Chesterfield TUC Secretary and is still doing that job today. 

Shay said: “I’m glad to receive the award and proud to be a member of the Chesterfield & District Trades Union Council, one of the most active trades councils in the country.
I wear my award badge proudly next to the GMB logo on my fleece.”


 

Valentine Poem
Family members miles apart
Sending valentines from the heart
Hearts and kisses meant for some
But some workers won’t be home
They lost their lives while at their job
Leaving many families robbed
So keep health and safety in your mind
Or you won’t be this year’s Valentine.
Shay January 2013

WE DID NOT VOTE TO DIE AT WORK

That was the defiant message sent to the government by campaigners, including several members from the GMB Chesterfield No. 1 branch who made a stand against planned funding cuts to the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) and local councils in a demonstration in Chesterfield town centre on Workers’ Memorial Day in April.

“The health and safety of workers will be left to the ‘common sense’ of the employers” said Shay Boyle, GMB branch Secretary and development worker for the Trade Union Safety Team. “Try explaining that to the 600 people who were forced to contact us for advice.”


 

DWP Nil Points as GMB Demonstrate Outside Chesterfield Job Centre
DWP_Nil_Points_thumb.jpg
On 24th January, 30 people, including several GMB members from Chesterfield No. 1 branch, met outside the Jobcentre to give the DWP nil points as part of a campaign against assessments made to Employment and Support Allowance claimants.  There was good media coverage.  A similar demonstration is being planned in Derby.  Colin Hampton, Chesterfield Unemployed Workerentre co-ordinater and GMB Auditor, has been helping the Derby Trades Council establish a Derby Unemployed Workers’ Centre and the Demo will be part of the launch of the group. 


 

Protest against Cameron’s cuts on Budget day

As David Cameron yesterday spelled out the scale and scope of the proposed cuts to be introduced on Emergency Budget day, the Chesterfield & District Trades Union Council were in there first with a planned Budget Day Protest in Chesterfield Town Centre.  Colin Hampton and Shay Boyle, from Chesterfield GMB No.1 branch and James Eaden, Trades Council President and UCU member led the demonstration in New Square. Trade union banners were staged around the square. Table top information areas were set up and leaflets about the cuts were handed out to the public between 11.30am and 2.00pm. Passers by were invited to join the GMB as membership application forms were handed out by Shay.
chesterfield_pic_1_thumb.jpg
Colin Hampton reminded everybody that all working people and their families are being lined up to take cuts in order to pay back the billions used to bail out the bankers in the financial crisis. The Budget Day protest and rally aims to bring together the widest possible coalition of resistance to the proposed cut backs. Speakers from UCATT, NASUWT, GMB, UCU and Bill Greenshields from th e East Midlands NUT came along and said Their bit. As well as a 16 year old student, protesting about the shutting down of college courses.  (I gave him a GMB form as well).

Francis O’Grady, TUC deputy general secretary, led the conference which is meeting at a crucial time. As the economy continues to struggle, as regional disparities increase and as unemployment looks set to rise beyond 2.5 million.

The consequences of the cuts will be devastating. Not just on recovery, growth and jobs. Not just on the services most of us rely on. Not just on the jobs, pay and pensions of dedicated public servants. But also on the fabric of our society, on the glue that holds Britain’s communities together. GMB members attended several workshops designed to tackle making our voice heard better. Dispelling unemployment and benefits myths and deciding how we show there is an alternative to the cuts.

I stayed over for the massive turnout at the Westminster lobby yesterday. Westminster Hall was wall to wall with trade unions and community groups. Ordinary people like nurses, community workers and volunteers gave speeches to rapturous applause and whistle blowing. At one point in the afternoon, the chair, Francis O’Grady, said that there were so many people going across the road to lobby their MP that the security guards had to shut the gates!

Binging Bankers Bail-out

Begging fat cat bankers were out in force in Chesterfield Market.  A group of campaigners from ‘Coalition Against The Cuts’, including several GMB members, staged a protest against the government’s decision to cut public spending by slashing jobs and taking money from the poor. They were saying to passers by, “We’re the fat cat bankers and we’ve got all your money and now we want your jobs and services as well.”

Our bit of street theatre had a serious message as well,” said Shay Boyle from Chesterfield GMB No.1 branch.  “The budget deficit was caused by the bailing out of the banks and now they want me and you to pay for their binge.”

After Chesterfield, the begging bankers will be appearing in towns throughout North Derbyshire. Look out for them!

Four little nonners lopping off a tree, one fell off the ladder and then there were three.
Three little nonners cleaning out a flue, one developed COPD and then there were two.
Two little nonners working in the sun, one asked for skin cream and then there was one.
One clever worker knowing what to do signed up with the GMB and then there were two.
Two union members liked the GMB, agreed time off and sick pay and then there were three.
Three union members seeing accidents soar, they trained up a safety Rep and then there were four.
Four union members saw safety boots arrive, held a workplace meeting and then there were five.
Five union members in spite of management’s tricks improved the workplace safety and then there were six.

News and Events

IMG_0482_thumb.JPG
GMB Parkgate branch organised a golf day in aid of Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. The golf day was sponsored by GMB Yorkshire region, Pellacraft, Thompson Solicitors and Tata Speciality Steels, with prizes donated by a number of individuals and local golf clubs.

Howard Webb presented the prizes and, in his opening comments, paid tribute to our hard working members in care homes. A cheque was presented to Julie Hampson from Bluebell Wood for over £3,320. This was increased by a raffle, football card and auction. The final amount has to be calculated but is expected to be around £4,000. Many thanks to all sponsors, donators and competitors.

Thanks also to all those who contributed to the bucket collection, held by the region at this year’s Congress and to the CEC for making the collection up to £1,400.00.
