Our mate Red Redmond has sent up a fund to help working class comedians during covid19. Live comedy has disappeared for the foreseeable future, taking many people's incomes along with it. Many comedians are looking at other ways to perform from home such as podcasts, streaming etc.
This fund is offering working class comedians help to buy the equipment they need to adapt to the current situation.
Red openly admits comming from a position of privileged and wants to help people in the industry in danger of being left behind.
If you are lucky enough to have a few quid spare please donate so more people can be supported. Or you can help out by sharing the campaign with your networks.
If you are a working class comedian check out the campaign to find out how to apply.

Congratulations to Joshua Bale and Anneka Cadge who have been named as the joint winners of the NASUWT Young Activist of the Year Award.

The award is given annually to outstanding  NASUWT activists aged under 30. 
Joshua has reinvigorated his local NASUWT association and is taking positive action to address issues of concern to members locally.

Anneka was given the award for her determination in organising members in her school to successfully oppose proposed plans by their employer to withdraw from the Teachers' Pension Scheme. The plans would have had a significant impact on the future financial security of teachers at the school.

After weeks of negotiations with the Department of Education and Training, we have secured a  working from home allowance for TAFE teachers, similar to what has been provided in schools. 
It involves a one-off payment of $100 for home office expenses, as well as $20 per week for home office consumables and utilities. This $20 weekly payment will be paid on a pro-rata basis, based on the employee’s time fraction. The payment will be back dated to 9 April 2020 and will continue until DET advises the policy has been lifted.

We were honored to receive this video from Mike McColgan, lead singer of Street Dogs and E-Board representative to Boston Fire Fighters Local 718 IAFF. To quote Edward A. Kelly IAFF General Secretary-Treasurer, “our Firefighters are the tip of the spear in the battle against COVID-19. Whether it’s putting out fires or responding to a pandemic, serving this city is what we do.” @mikemmcc

We are in a time of great uncertainty and many people are concerned about the conditions in which they will be asked to return to work. Our trade unions are already working constructively in many key industries including food production, postal deliveries and transport to make workplaces safer.

𝙃𝙤𝙡𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙙𝙤𝙬𝙣 𝙖 𝙟𝙤𝙗 (𝙤𝙧 𝙟𝙤𝙗𝙨) 𝙬𝙝𝙚𝙣 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙨𝙪𝙛𝙛𝙚𝙧 𝙣𝙚𝙜𝙖𝙩𝙞𝙫𝙚 𝙢𝙚𝙣𝙩𝙖𝙡 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙝 𝙞𝙨 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙣𝙜𝙞𝙣𝙜. And worse so, when your mind is wrestling you to do the opposite. I hit rock bottom on a Monday at 6:30am. I got out of bed and told my mam I'd be more likely to crash my car into a wall on the way to work, than I would be to make it to my desk and I meant it. 
I had final exams in weeks, my nvq deadline in days and a fixed term apprenticeship with only 4 months left. My employer could have refused me a permanent contract come September without giving so much as an excuse and here I was ringing in sick with depression. Sounds grim eh? It could have been - but I was in a Trade Union ✊ 
When I returned to work my TU rep met my employer and got my contract extended with enough time for me to pass out. They enrolled me in the GMB young members and educated me in my rights. They supported me via their Mental Health Matters Campaign and gave me a 24 hour free helpline for legal advice. They invited me to life changing events like the Durham Miners Gala, Tolpuddle Festival and the Cuban Solidarity Campaign 🇨🇺 They gave me a National Committee seat to represent apprentices across the UK and introduced me to my best friends and a lifelong family support system. 
The GMB gave me something to live for. They taught me independence in a society that encourages dependency and opened my eyes to a better world I didn't know existed. The trade union world will be a lifeline to so many in the year ahead, it will celebrate diversity, break through glass ceilings and break down class systems. No matter your circumstance there is a Trade Union for you, working for your greater good - all you need do is join. And if you're already in a trade union there is always more they can give you - all you need do is ask. #𝑴𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒂𝒍𝑯𝒆𝒂𝒍𝒕𝒉𝑴𝒂𝒕𝒕𝒆𝒓𝒔 🌈☀️#powerinaunion #stayhome #joinatradeunion #savelives

It’s ok to be afraid but you do not have to work in a place that is not safe. Your right is defended by the Employment Rights Act.

If you feel that your organisation isn’t on your side and you might be threatened with losing your job, you don’t have to shut up. Unions are support structures. They exist to help people by defending their interests and rights. That includes the right not to work in circumstances where you are in danger. If you feel unsafe or insecure, please please consider joining a union.

Kroger has informed employees it plans to eliminate the $2/hour bonus for working amid the pandemic, by the middle of May.

They are risking their lives to ensure America is fed no matter what and deserve to keep this minimal bonus.

“La forza è nel
sindacato”, testo italiano trasposto al volo dalla versione di Billy Bragg. Brano scritto negli anni ‘10 del secolo scorso da Joe Hill, poi oggetto di tante mutazioni a livello di testo e melodia. Come sono mutati i tempi, le consapevolezze e gli orizzonti in cent’anni e passa, ma non la lotta tra capitale e diritti dei lavoratori.

just wanted to share some images of #LGSM (#lesbiansandgayssupporttheminers) & other historical goodies for #mayday (#internationalworkersday). it is crucial that we align ourselves with the laborers of the world, especially during #covid19. i know that utilizing resources such as amazon or instacart is inevitable or required for people with disabilities or others who find such companies to be vital resources during this time. but there are other ways to support workers internationally today if you find yourself unable to boycott the major corporations that are denying workers their rights. spreading awareness, attending virtual protests, as well as donating to organizations that support the workers of the world. if you're interested in such resources, feel free to DM me and we can do some searching together to find the right fit for you. ✊🏼 #resist #protest #downwithcapitalism #workers #labor #powerinaunion #unionize #laborers

May Day/ Beltane is about connecting with community to celebrate life.
We can still support our friends and be supported from afar! We heal and expand our hearts through relationship.
I know Zoom and FaceTime aren’t as good as hugging in person, but they’re still pretty good.
.
And please also support the general strike today for International Workers Day. Send some good thoughts to the workers striking from Amazon, Whole Foods, Target, Trader Joe’s and Instacart. Please don’t use any of these businesses today.

Thank you all, I’m so grateful for this community. ☕️🥤🧉

Seit Bestehen des 1. Mai werden an diesem Tag die Kämpfe von denen sichtbar, die sich gegen ihre beschissenen Arbeits- und Lebensbedingungen wehren.
Vor 10 Jahren wurde das traditionelle Gewerkschaftsfest in Hannover zu einem »Fest der Demokratie« umgedeutet und u.a. die FDP, die CDU oder Kirchen wurden explizit eingeladen. Dagegen gab es einen Bannerdrop am Conti Campus als Gruß an die traditionelle 1. Mai Demo und den antikapitalistischen Block. Der ganze Slogan war »Kampf dem Kapitalismus statt Fest der Demokratie«. Das Transparent war riesig.

Oggi più che mai questa festa ha un significato importante, in un periodo che sta cambiando le vite di tutti.
Qualcuno un lavoro non ce l'ha più, qualcuno è lasciato alla cassa integrazione, qualcun altro a sussidi che non si sa se arriveranno, mentre altri ancora non avranno alcun sostegno perché non rientrano nelle categorie socialmente riconosciute.
E chi un lavoro continua ad averlo, invece, rischia tutti i giorni in situazioni spesso prive di controlli di sicurezza e tutela della salute.
In questa giornata non dimentichiamo i nostri diritti e uniamoci per riprenderceli!
Buon primo maggio.

I’m pretty sure Shipt is included in this too. You know this is serious because I, a white woman, am telling you not to go to Target. These workers deserve our solidarity and support as they fight for fair pay and protections while they are forced to work through a pandemic.

Do not cross picket lines.

We're teaming up with Sewing Café Lancaster to offer free reusable sanitary products through our corona support network. Period poverty is just another problem made worse by the pandemic, and we're working with the Sewing Cafe to make sure everyone in our community gets what they need. They've also been sewing masks and scrubs for health workers. Absolute heroes. #PowerInAUnion

Seit dem 25. Februar sind die Arbeiter_innen der Fabrik von Productos Florida SA in Almassora, Valencia (Spanien) im unbefristeten Streik. Die Hauptforderung der Belegschaft ist, dass alle scheinselbstständigen Arbeiter_innen sofort reguläre Arbeitsverträge erhalten – und damit grundsätzliche und eigentlich selbstverständliche Arbeiter_innenrechte.

Die Streikenden errichteten ein Streik-Camp vor den Toren der Fabrik, einige Teile der Belegschaft gingen sogar in den Hungerstreik. Die Belegschaft organisierte Kundgebungen und Demonstrationen, u.a. auch in Barcelona (Sitz des Mutterkonzerns, der Servicarne Cooperative) und Madrid (Sitz des Arbeitsministeriums). Durch die Corona-Pandemie war die Belegschaft gezwungen das Camp abzubauen, Kundgebungen und Picketlines einzustellen und auch den Hungerstreik zu beenden. Der Arbeitskampf scheint damit noch einige Zeit länger zu dauern, wird allerdings weiterhin von 95% der Betroffenen fortgeführt. Für die migrantischen Arbeiter_innen heißt das u.a. z.T. Obdachlosigkeit, Angewiesenheit auf das Streikgeld, mangelnde gesundheitliche Versorgung, bei andauern der Auseinandersetzung auch zunehmend unklarer Aufenthaltsstatus.

In dieser Situation bitten die streikenden Arbeiter_innen und ihre Gewerkschaft @cntvalencia  um zweierlei: Finanzielle Unterstützung der Streikkassen und medialen Druck.

Nach der Pandemie kommt die Wirtschaftskrise und diese wird ein richtiger Brecher. Die herrschende Klasse wird wieder versuchen Vermögen zu schützen und Krisenverluste zu sozialisieren. Also fangt jetzt an euch vorzubereiten, baut Strukturen auf um Verarmung und Vereinzelung zu bekämpfen. Und tretet in die FAU ein.

Since we launched our #CancelTheRent campaign on Tuesday, we've had over 750 signatures on our open letter and over 300 tenants have stated their willingness to withhold rent payments. We are doing amazingly and we can win this! Let's keep sharing, keep this momentum going and get those rents cancelled! #PowerInAUnion

🇸🇪Det blev en bra arbetsdag. Var på möte med en medlem. Hans AG ville avskeda honom. Jag fick till en uppgörelse istället där medlemmen fick 6 månaders lön. Och arbetsbefriad. Det lönar sig att vara med i Kommunal! 💪👏👌🌹

On this day, 6 March 1913, Joe Hill's song "There is Power in a Union" first appeared in the Industrial Workers of the World union's Little Red Song Book.

The chorus goes a little something like this: “There is pow'r there is pow'r in a band of workingmen,
When they stand hand in hand,
That's a pow'r, that's a pow'r
That must rule in every land—
One Industrial Union Grand.”

LRU members were out in force on Thursday at @onehousinggroup who have knowingly let Samira and her family live in a dangerously cold home for over 10 years. 
As a result of our action, senior directors have promised an investigation. ✊🏻✊🏽✊🏿 Directors agreed to meet again in 2 weeks. We will escalate our campaign if what is offered does not meet our  member's needs.

“...Governments do not lead, they merely endeavour to maintain the status quo ante bellum or follow safely behind aroused public opinion. 
It is therefore obvious that organization and publicity is as necessary for the betterment of the civil service as it is for the advancement of any trade or profession.” - excerpt from the first issue of the Civil Servant (January 1920). The Civil Servant was the first publication of the Provincial Civil Service Association of BC (would later become the BC Government and Service Employees’ Union). Content like this is found throughout the issue engaging workers in the political and social reasons to organize among each other. #bcgeu100 #powerinaunion
