Issue No. 2477

Rowley Owls Nursery bosses in the West Midlands suspended a nursery manager on Friday of last week. 

The GMB union member, who has not been named, led a successful fight against nursery cuts.    

Gillian Whittaker, the local GMB organiser, told Socialist Worker, “We ran a successful campaign against cuts earlier this month. We feel that she has been targeted because of that.”

Gillian said, “We’re going to hold a members’ meeting when the school is back next week to decide what to do.”

Workers striking can push back the bosses’ attack on the union.
