Liverpool council workers are fighting for their jobs

Issue No. 2124

Hundreds of workers lobbied Liverpool city council on Wednesday of last week in protest at planned job cuts.

Some 300 workers at Enterprise Liverpool, who maintain and repair the city's ex-council housing, are being threatened with redundancy.

Joint trade union spokesperson Sid Graves told Socialist Worker, 'The lobby was a great success. Around 250 people came – Enterprise employees and ex-employees, social care workers and pupils and teachers from Croxteth comprehensive school, which is threatened with closure.'

At a previous mass meeting, workers at Enterprise Liverpool voted unanimously to say they are prepared to take industrial action to fight the redundancies.
