Don’t vote Ukip

After the terrible events in Rotherham, don’t let the racists divide us. UKIP care nothing for the working class communities of South Yorkshire and will use cynical racist propaganda to divide us. Unity is strength, don’t vote UKIP!

More news from Toyoda Gosei

Unite Community members continued to offer their support today at Toyoda Gosei in Rotherham.

Toyoda Gosei workers have started to join up online and on the gate after weeks of Unite engagement. Our next step is to offer workers a drop in session next week, where we have booked a room at the Magna Center.

Unfortunately there are no quick fix solutions in Industrial organizing but our hard work is beginning to pay off. Organise to win!

Anti EDL Demonstration Rotherham 10/05/2014

Unite Community members were among the Anti-Fascist demonstrators in Rotherham yesterday, The EDL had a worryingly high turn out on the demonstration, proving that our movement cannot become complacent, rumors of the demise of the English Defense League are obviously exaggerated.

The far right are trying to capitalize on working peoples genuine fears and frustrations as the Con-Dem Austerity bites, causing misery and hardship for many people. We must stand united in our opposition to their message of division and hate.
