Support Aylesbury hospital staff issued redundancy notices

Staff working at the private hospital Royal Bucks, working with patients with spinal injuries, only got paid 20% of their wages for July.

They were given three days notice of this. A week later they were given 30 days notice of redundancy and that the hospital was closing.

Rather than accepting this, union and non-union members of staff have come together and are campaigning for what they are owed and for their jobs and livilehoods.

They are prepared to speak at meetings and will be out on the streets of Buckinghamshire to publicise their situation.

They, alongside Bucks Health Unison, have set up a hardship fund for the many who are experiencing mortgage and rent difficulties as they are unable to claim benefits.

They are appealing to the labour movement for solidarity in the form of raising the issue at workplaces and for financial donations.

Initially donations can be made payable to Bucks Health Unison and sent to the Union Office, Tindal Centre, Bierton Rd, Aylesbury Bucks, HP19.

For more information, contact Steve Bell, Bucks Unison branch sec.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • We must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our Fighting Fund.

Please donate here.

All payments are made through a secure server.
