Solidarity to Unite members on strike in Bromley Libraries.
Last week Unite members in Bromley Libraries took further strike action against plans to privatise and amateurise the service.
One of the Unite Stewards very kindly sent me some photos and had this to say;
"We have over 1200 signatures on our surveys which just shows the massive support for our campaign. The Council must accept that they cannot go on with their plan to cover up the glaring truth that Bromley residents do not want private companies running their services. They do not want volunteers in their community Libraries, the volunteers who run the WRVS (home delivery library service to the housebound) don't want volunteers running the service!
We will continue with our campaign to inform people of the unnecessary destruction that this Council is doing. We need people to write to their ward councillors and let them know how they feel.
Steven Carr leader of Bromley council told one of our members in the high street that Bromley Libraries were under no threat but you only have to research what has happened in Croydon to see that once the private sector get hold of a service they will drain the life out of it for profit."
