Jubilee South branch stands in solidarity with striking Tower Hamlets council workers

Council workers in the east London borough of Tower Hamlets are due to strike on 3, 6, and 7 July, against their bosses' plans to dismiss thousands of workers and re-engage them on worse terms and conditions.

At its meeting on 1 July, RMT Jubilee South branch, which organises workers at Canary Wharf station, in the borough of Tower Hamlets, launched a solidarity statement in support of the strike, and donated £200 to the workers' strike fund. RMT activists are organising to secure additional branch and individual signatories to the statement.
