Quite how a bent Tory getting caught out develops into a conversation about Trade Union influence is beyond me
British Gas trades on our country's name but doesn't have our country's interests at heart. Fire and rehire is a national disgrace, and in light of British Gas' actions and the wider precedent it sets for all workers, I called on the Government to act #BritishGasFireKeyWorkers
I'm certainly not relaxed!! Bit of a difference between TUs representing and fighting on behalf of their members (the workers) and a bunch of lobbyists.
it's always ordinary people who have to atone for their mistakes and are immediately accountable, whereas the establishment, manoeuvre, wriggle and shirk responsibility, continually avoiding accountability at any cost, justice serves vested interest & not its citizens
When trade unions ‘lobby’ MPs they aren’t doing so to line their own pockets with millions of pounds, but to win rights and protections for their members. This incredibly important point seems to be missing in this debate.
The Government have had ACAS's report on Fire & Rehire since February but have kept it under wraps & failed to respond. Those workers losing their livelihoods will remember this Government abandoned them, their families & communities in their hour of need #StopTheBritishGasFire
Dave is right, find a union that represents you, join that union, get involved, get organised and make a difference ✊ I’ll make it easy here’s a link to find a union 😊 https://www.tuc.org.uk/join-a-union @TUCNorthWest @The_TUC @CWUnews @DaveWardGS #cwuandproud #StopTheBritishGasFire
“I’m sick of seeing people I know, and people I don’t know, having to put up with the kind of abuse that turns my stomach. It has to stop and anyone who has a shred of decency has to play their part in making it stop.”
Massive respect to British Gas workers sacked today for refusing to sign new contracts with worse terms & conditions. Fire and rehire would be cowardly in normal times, let alone in a global pandemic, and any decent, civilised society would criminalise it
And whilst the Government sits on its hands, more workers are being bullied into worse terms and conditions with lower pay and longer hours. They don’t need ACAS to tell them that Fire and Re Hire should be outlawed.
Back on strike action next week... Openreach Repayments Engineers fighting a change in grade to management from engineering and a change in T&Cs.. stepping up to protect the future and the public purse... @CWUnews @NWCWU @MENnewsdesk @CWU_AndyKerr @CWU_ManCom @DaveWardGS
Solidarity with GMB members at British Gas who are on strike today over the use of fire and rehire tactics. They are not just standing up for themselves, but for all workers who could be subjected to fire and rehire threats. Fire and rehire must be outlawed.
Communications workers have helped keep us connected during the pandemic. Yet BT Group workers face compulsory redundancies at a time when unemployment is rising. I've written to BT Group's CEO urging him to think again and negotiate with @CWUnews. #CountMeIn
Our next Industrial Action will be from 19th April until 23rd April..be great to see you down Dial House on Chapel Street
If you’re waking up this morning, imagine the plight of British Gas engineers. As key workers they worked through the pandemic to keep the elderly&vulnerable warm. Today they’re getting sacked. No redundancy. Nothing. Why? Because they refused to sign a worse contract.
Loyalty cuts both ways ,But not with British Gas and this Government.Both could stop the The Culture of Greed on the Backs of our BG staff . Stop the Sackings Now .Shame on O’Shea @gmbnwi @bplantgmb @GMBCouncillors @Georgie_Patto @SFoodbanks @VLCLiverpool @TUCNorthWest @GMBNI
After 42 Days of Strike Action we finally lost our Industrial Dispute. Losing so many unbelievable colleagues to the immoral Fire & Rehire is beyond heartbreaking! Proud to have stood on the pickets shoulder to shoulder with every one of you! ✊🏼💔✊🏼 #StopTheBritishGasFire
Never cross a picket line!!
Not a sinister country at all
So by this time tomorrow I along with many others will be fired by British Gas. What have we done wrong? Absolutely nothing, we just didn't agree to their new contract that would make us work longer hours for less pay. 30 years of loyal service counts for nothing. 🥲 #britishgas

🚨In spite of 10 years of Government cuts, totalling £86m, Government inspectors rated @LancsPolice one of the best & most efficient police forces in the country. Re-elect me on May 6th and let's keep #Lancashire one of the best forces in the country 🗳 #Clive4PCC
I was supposed to be in work today but British Gas took my van last week effectively locking me out for refusing to sign a much reduced contract. Sign the petition and help stop this appalling abuse of workers and workers rights. #StopTheBritishGasFire #EndFire&Rehire
Solidarity with BT group workers, following worrying reports of compulsory redundancies & downgrading of terms & conditions for workers, at a time when unemployment is rising due to the pandemic. I’ve written to the BT group CEO to relay my concerns 👇@CWUnews #CountMeIn
It’s very worrying that @Teleperformance plan to use webcams to monitor Scottish workers in their own homes. Call centre work is already low paid, exploitative and precarious. This sinister move must be resisted. Solidarity with @CallCentreCol @cwu_scotland for calling this out.
