Fighting back in the low wage economy!


People’s Forum

Organised by Bristol People’s Assembly

Fighting Back

TUESDAY 16 October 7pm
TSSA, Newminster House,
29 Baldwin St, BS1 1LT

Speakers include:

📢 Lauren Townsend, TGI Fridays worker & Oct 4 strike leader (Unite)
📢 Paul Shanks, striking Deliveroo rider (couriers network)
📢 Susan Newman, political economist and anti-austerity activist
📢 Rob Wotherspoon, Communication Workers Union Bristol branch secretary

The last year has seen a series of successful and news-grabbing strikes and protest campaigns by groups of workers ranging from social care workers, fast food workers, university cleaners, Uber drivers and delivery workers.

On Oct 4th workers at McDonalds, TGI Fridays, UberEats and JD Wetherspoon workers went on strike for a living wage in over a dozen workplaces and eight cities across the country, including Bristol, for the Fast Food Shutdown!

All were highlighting issues of poverty pay, precarious contracts, insecure working and lack of union recognition.

Bristol People’s Assembly has invited workers from these sectors to talk about their experiences and where they’re planning to take their campaigns next.
