Privatization means 91% of Southern Water is now owned by a combination of JP Morgan Asset management, UBS Asset management, Hermes Infrastructure Funds & Whitehelm Capital. If you expect this kind of outfit to prioritize the environment over profit you're living in a dream world
104 days after been fined £90m for dumping sewage into the environment and less than 12 hours after Gov voted to protect water companies and not our rivers, @SouthernWater were dumping sewage at 60, yes 60, different locations along the south coast of England. #COP26 hypocrisy
T&FS and Postal panels are both ready to take questions from our young workers as the industrial breakouts (and last session of the weekend) commences 👍
Now time for the young workers to take centre stage! All 6 of those pictured currently hold elected positions on our national industrial or executive committees 👏 💪
The clearest indication yet a lockdown is on its way
The Tories have blocked @BarryGardiner's Bill to #EndFireAndRehire. They did it by using Parliamentary tactics to stop it moving forward, rather than by voting against it - but the effect is the same. They have blocked the Bill - and have given bad bosses free reign.

Fire and Rehire and the Blue Wall.
Just received another email from The S*n asking for our comment on an issue. How many times do we have to say: 1. The CWU will never give comment to this rag. 2. CWU officials will never write for The S*n 3. The S*n is banned from all CWU premises Solidarity #J4T97
For Andy Burnham to be under attack by Labour MPs and figures from within our own party for making this point is beyond maddening. There should be full and total support for those pushing for decent transport for everybody.
The CWU has led the call for a new deal for workers. We can't sit around and wait for politicians to bail us out - the union movement must step up. I'm pleased to be joining @UniteSharon today in Liverpool to talk about how we mobilise our movement and build collectivism #UPC2021
