Thank you Mark it was a fantastic meeting and great to hear the brilliant job your reps are doing.
ICYMI - @PaulaBarkerMP on why she's introducing the 'national minimum wage bill'. #ClapsDontPayTheBills 👇 https://labourlist.org/2020/10/why-im-introducing-the-national-minimum-wage-bill/
In view of the announcement today of more needless job losses in BT Technology, it is now more important than ever that all our Technology members that haven’t already voted in the consultative ballot vote......and that they vote YES! @CWUnews #CountMeIn

There are several events including Halloween coming up that would usually be celebrated with others. Unfortunately, as we know, this year needs to be different due to #COVID19 19 & the restrictions in place to help stop the spread of the virus & protect lives here in #Lancashire

Tory MPs using identical words to claim parents use free school meal vouchers for alcohol and tobacco. They know that the vouchers can’t be used for alcohol and tobacco. Is there no depth to which these Tories won’t stoop to justify not supporting hungry children?
We did one in our road today
Sir Iain Duncan Smith got that knighthood for systematically demolishing Britain's welfare safety net between 2010 and 2016. More than anybody else, he bears the blame for the return of mass hunger in this country.
👋 @vincecable - regular reminder that if you hadn’t undersold Royal Mail by £1bn and started the race to the bottom then the company could have modernised and diversified in public hands. Stop pointing the finger at the CWU and our members and get yourself a mirror

The more I think about this the more ridiculous it is. Is he saying people are trading ham sandwiches and a Capri sun for drugs?
Huge thanks to @JamesGazette and @The_Gazette for covering my fundraiser for #FreeSchoolMeals in today’s paper. We’re only £1k short of our £7k target having raising a staggering £6,000 in just 48 hours. 🖥 https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/blackpoolfb #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY
The gall of it Cut after cut after cut they have inflicted on councils
School kids going hungry and @ManCityCouncil are wanting to outsource kids school meals to the private sector. @gmbnwi will fight to keep it in house and give our children the best possible start.@GMBCouncillors @SirRichardLeese @mickclarkus73 @AndyBurnhamGM @JenWilliamsMEN
At the end of a tough week for us all, and as we enter Tier 3, I wanted to send my own personal message to everyone in Greater Manchester. 👇

Funny we can't feed poor kids but we can subsidise Private Schools for rich kids. About sums up our country! #FreeSchoolMeals https://www.theguardian.com/education/2019/feb/05/critics-take-aim-at-subsidies-given-to-private-schools
💥£2,000 raised in 12 hours💥 I’m blown away that we’ve reached over £2k for local families in #Blackpool so no child goes hungry this half-term. Please share the link below. 💻 https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/blackpoolfb #ENDCHILDFOODPOVERTY
It wasn't put on the table Andy because they didn't want to give you a victory. If they had put it on the table you would have been credited for achieving it. But you must know that?
Honestly, can barely believe what I’m reading here. 👇 Why on earth was this not put on the table on Tuesday to reach an agreement with us? I said directly to the PM that a deal was there to be done if it took into account the effects on GM businesses of three months in Tier 2.
We have launched a consultative ballot for our members in BT Technology - It is absolutely vital that everyone votes yes and uses their vote 🗳
Consultative ballot on strike action in Technology as compulsory redundancies loom large. Read more: https://www.cwu.org/news/consultative-ballot-on-strike-action-in-technology-as-compulsory-redundancies-loom-large/
You missed a bit at the end @BorisJohnson. * Does not include vulnerable kids who rely on free school meals and need the government's support to get through this but will have to go hungry because you and 321 other Tory MPs voted against it last night.
