IT workers on strike this morning near Liverpool Street. Their employer, Goodlord, is firing them and rehiring them on conditions that push them below the London Living Wage.
One picket lost her flat because of the pay cut. Other workers have had to stop buying groceries. Rightly these workers have got organised and are striking back!
The boss came through on his bike to find striking workers, Unite union branch members, East London Socialist Party members and others waving flags outside his gate. He was rattled!
Bosses are increasingly using ‘fire and rehire’ to smash workers’ pay and conditions. These workers are among many drawing a line. Victory to the Goodlord strike!
