GMB Protest On Tuesday 26th January At Bexley Town Hall Over Cuts To Youth Service In The Borough
This protest is to reflect the public outcry over plans to change the structure of Bexley’s youth services being debated at the council meeting says GMB.
GMB, the union for public services, is organizing a protest outside Bexley Town Hall on Tuesday 26 January from 6.45pm over cuts to Bexley’s youth services that include the equivalent of seven full time jobs being lost.
The details of the protest are as follows:
From 6.45pm Tuesday 26th January,
Outside Bexley Town Hall,
2 Watling St,
Kent, DA6 7AT
Clive Smith, GMB regional officer, said “This protest is to reflect the public outcry over plans to change the structure of Bexley’s youth services being debated at the council meeting.
GMB represents full time and part time youth service workers whose jobs are being threatened by the cuts.
There is an on-going consultation which will likely lead to the loss of most of the part time staff who look after the evening and weekend provision.
The cuts include the equivalent of seven full time jobs being lost. We are lobbying the council meeting to oppose the redundancies.
Already many residents have already signed a petition in protest to the council implementing any closures in the youth service. We are calling on the public to join us at the protest.”
