Benefit For The Leeds Bin Strike: Ten Weeks In
The tiny coverage that this strike has had in the news media has been a disgrace. But the bin workers of Leeds are now in their tenth week of solid strike action.
They recently rejected the council’s “final offer” with a 92% vote.
I’ll be playing for the strikers tomorrow (Fri 13 Nov) at The Casa in Hope Street, Liverpool, along with Leeds’ own Gary Kaye.
The council plans to slash wages by a third, and other councils are watching in the hope that the strikers are beaten.
The night kicks off at 7.30pm and the aim is to raise money for the strikers and their families.
It’s £10 in, or £5 concessions.
Please do come along and show your solidarity. Their struggle is our own.
