Phil Billows

Issue No. 1814

A RALLY has been called in defence of Phil Billows. He is the Unison union branch secretary at Barts and the Royal London Hospital Trust in east London. Trust bosses suspended Phil from his job over one month ago. Phil has been at the forefront of the fight against the PFI scheme at the hospital trust.

Ballot papers go out this week for an indicative vote to see if workers are willing to strike if Phil is sacked.

Rally, Thursday 29 August, 7pm, Jagonari Centre, corner of Vallance Road and Whitechapel Road, London. Speakers include Geoff Martin, Unison London Region convenor.
