Stop benefit sanctions

No Sanctions

National day of action
Thu., 30th March, 6pm
College Green, Bristol, BS1

The Unite Community Branch in Bristol campaigns against the cruel use of benefit sanctions. On the 30th March 2017 they will be joining a National day of action.

More and more people are facing unfair and inappropriate benefit sanctions. In 2016 hundreds of thousands of people had their benefit stopped.
That’s hundreds of thousands people, many of whom have been plunged into poverty, unable to heat their homes or even eat. How is this meant to help prepare people for work?

These sanctions are handed out unfairly and for ridiculous reasons such as:

  • Arriving minutes late to a meeting
  • Not applying for jobs when waiting to start a new job!
  • Missing an appointment on the day of the funeral of a close family member.
