💻Just emailed my MP asking he votes against his Gov’s plans to take £1000 a year from the poorest households on Monday🏠 Sacrifices families have made in 2020 have been unimaginable. We cant ask the poorest to shoulder the burden. With me email your MP📧 https://bit.ly/2LyX3s3

So the government are very concerned about the new COVID varient found in Brazil? But they haven't introduced a ban on travel from the South American country. Why not? I thought we had took back control of our borders.
Bereavement is a painful but inevitable experience that can require time and space away from work to recover. That's why, along with @Sue_Ryder and many others, I support a right to #BereavementLeaveforall. Find out more at http://www.sueryder.org/news/sue-ryder-gains-support-for-statutory-bereavement-leave
Totally agree & in the case of British Gas they are making huge profits for their shareholders whilst attacking the very workers who build the company. The impact of corporate greed is incalculable. Thanks for showing your support.
It’s inexcusable that Santander senior managers didn’t realise the hurt and upset they would cause their employees on the Bootle site by teaming up with the S*n. Apologises don’t cut it. They need to immediately cut all ties with this rag!

I’ve written to @GavinWilliamson on behalf of outraged constituents regarding the shameful parcels to families claiming #FreeSchoolMeals. I’ve also asked him to support the #RightToFood. Sign our petition today to make access to food a legal right: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/562838
Proud to have successfully tabled a motion at full council to defend the @unionlearn fund. The ULF is so important and provides up skilling, learning and education to workers across the country.

RT this if you support your local postie. They are working relentlessly to get your mail to you. Some of them have been struck down by covid. Some are isolating. All are doing everything they can to keep the country connected. Please show some patience and understanding.
Pete from my constituency is one of the many engineers working for #BritishGas that have been threatened with the sack if he doesn't sign a new contract-more hours and less pay . I'm supporting him and @GMB_union and telling the C.E.0 to withdraw #fireandrehire contracts.
One wonders what these people expect from Postal Workers who have worked all the way through this pandemic so others can stay at home and keep safe. They should be praising them not sledging them. These people need to get a grip!
Come on then. Let’s start a positive thread. Let us know in the comments below why you love your postie. Our members are under tremendous pressure out there and are doing all they can to keep the country connected.
“Hats off” to Skelmersdale East Cty Cllr John Fillis now one of the trained nurses who will be administering the Covid vaccine; “Vaccination for the nation” - thank you John
Hi David, do you want us to set up a call with the local CWU Branch for you? You seem to have no idea what our members are going through to keep the country connected. Every piece of mail is vital but none more so than our members safety.
This was shared with by a parent in #Blackpool. This food parcel is supposed to feed their kids for a week. @ScottBentonMP do you think this is accceptable or enough to feed a hungry child in Blackpool for a week? This is from a primary school in your constituency.
Whilst @UKLabour ignores the break-up of the #NHS planned by @nhsengland in partnership with US healthcare bosses in the UK, CWU H&S committees in the North West respond to the consultation document! @MarkydHolt @redclocker @CommonsHealth @nwcwu @CerdynJones @JulesU13

All BT members are invited to watch this tomorrow 👇
The plan to anger the public against teachers is starting to work. A lot of propaganda being pumped out on targeted Facebook adverts. Imagine if the government put all their energy and resources into dealing with covid instead of dividing us. #SupportTheNEU
