Unison MeetingOutsourcing Meeting Report by Ron

John Burgess, Barnet UNISON Branch Secretary, led a discussion of how trade unionists and community residents can organise to combat councils’ attempts to outsource public services. Drawing on the experience of the London Borough, where since 2008, many public sources have been outsourced or privatised, John cited examples of campaigning activity, including holding stalls, petitioning, speaking at council meetings, grilling councillors with questions and political action aimed at unseating Tory councillors.The 25 who attended the meeting resolved to meet in the near future to build a movement in Northamptonshire to contest NCC’s plans to outsource a range of public sources to Community Interest Companies.

The Northampton ​TUC secretary  has  reserved a room  at the Doddridge Centre on Wednesday 7 October at 7:15 for the meeting to kick start a campaign against  outsourcing of NCC services. Feel free to spread the word to colleagues, neighbours  and friends, since the Barnet  campaign took off when they involved not only trade  unionists but community residents also.
