The cost-of-living crisis is throwing millions of people’s lives into chaos. The Tories have shown that they are not willing to address the root causes, so the trade union movement is mobilising for pay rises and action on soaring energy bills.


But what can unions do to take on the Covid crisis that is intersecting with the cost of living? Free tests are a thing of the past, sick pay is too low to take time off work and there is no self-isolation support available. Like the Covid pandemic, the cost of living is bound up with climate breakdown, but the Tories’ solution is to double down on new fossil fuel infrastructure here in Britain.


On Monday 27 June at 6pm, we are excited to be holding a speaker event with Karam Bales from the NEU and Jackie Santana from the IWGB. Karam has been a leading figure in the NEU’s response to Covid. Jackie is an organiser for the IWGB Cleaners branch, which is currently in dispute with London Bridge Hospital over poverty pay and access to sick pay. Join for a discussion on how the unions can take on Covid during the cost-of-living crisis.
