Housing

Issue No. 1670

THREE LABOUR controlled councils in the West Midlands have announced plans to privatise their entire housing stocks - 150,000 homes. These sell offs can be stopped. Tenants and trade unionists need to get behind the local campaign which already has the backing of Dudley council's UCATT convenor. The year long campaign in Sandwell in the West Midlands won and defeated the privatisation of 8,000 homes.


AROUND 80 angry tenants and housing workers joined a lobby recently of the housing committee of Southwark council in south London to protest against the Labour council's housing sell offs.


THE WYCOMBE district trades council and Hands off Our Homes campaigners are celebrating after five members of the council's housing committee voted against the privatisation of 7,300 council homes. A lobby of the council meeting is planned next week.
