Urgent Appeal To Help War Graves Workers

Solidarity means helping each other out which is why your support for Unite members in industrial struggle is needed.

Workers who maintain and care for our commonwealth war graves in France and Belgium are Unite members. They need your help.

The government has given these workers a terrible choice; come back to the UK or accept a 50% pay cut, a threat being fast-tracked through because we are leaving the European Union on 31st December.

This is no way to treat the workers who preserve the memory of the 1.7m Commonwealth servicemen and women who died in the two world wars fighting for our country.

Please help stop this.

Please ask your members to email the Minister directly at www.megaphone.org.uk/petitions/help-protect-commonwealth-war-graves-commission-cwgc-workers

The more emails and letters he receives, the greater the chance he listens.

The government accepts that these sudden changes were a mistake – so with your help we can win a fairer deal for our members. You can read more here https://unitelive.org/commonwealth-war-graves-commission-treating-staff-appallingly/

Thank you in advance for once again standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Unite members.
