BARNSLEY TRADES COUNCIL
SUPPORT THE JUNIOR DOCTORS STRIKE; DEFEND THE NHS
8am Wed. Feb. 10th Barnsley Hospital
Barnsley Trades Council is calling on trade unions to send delegations to the Gawber Road entrance of Barnsley Hospital at 8amonwards on Wed. February 10th to show solidarity with the junior doctors’ strike and picket.
Bring your union banners and flags and make your own placards. Around 25 trade unionists joined the striking doctors last time – it would be great if we can make that number bigger.
AXE THE TORY ANTI-TRADE UNION BILL
Protest 12pm – 1pm Thursday Feb. 11th Town Hall Steps – (below the fountains).
Barnsley Trades Council has organised a protest against the Tories’ anti Trade Union Bill as part of a national TUC day of action. We are calling on unions to send delegations, bring banners and placards and come prepared to speak.
We have to defend our unions and defend our right to strike. That is why solidarity with the doctors is so important as well as defying the Tories’ anti trade union laws.
Barnsley Trades Council is calling for a solidarity with the Junior Doctor’s picket, starting at 8am on Tues Jan 12th, to join their first strike picket-line at the Gawber Road entrance of Barnsley Hospital. Please spread the word and bring banners, flags and placards. UNITY IS STRENGTH

You can find further information, including a picketing map, at http://oneprofession.bma.org.uk/
The BMA have informed us that most picket lines will be from 8.00am to 10.00 at local hospitals. In larger towns members are going into the town centre at 10.00 for a rally and then back to the hospital, but I’m afraid that I don’t have any more specific information at the moment, as this has been left for local representatives to organise.
