Disabled Workers Fighting Back

On Monday, members of the TUC Disabled Workers' Committee met informally to discuss fighting back following the election of a majority Conservative government.


We agreed to contact disabled people’s organisations (in particular, the Reclaim Our Futures Alliance: ROFA) to discuss joint campaigning. We also agreed to have a specific agenda item at our next Disabled Workers’ Committee meeting in February to discuss and decide specific actions to organise a fightback amongst disabled workers. Committee members may submit written proposals to this in advance, so if you have any ideas you would like me to include, please let me know.


We will also review and update the Manifesto for Disability Equality that we previously published in 2016, in order to identify clear and definite demands to mobilise for.
