Crewe: Events

Do not forget that there is a Lunchtime Members’ Meeting TODAY (Tuesday) at 12.30pm in CR0-2, where members will hear reports on and discuss the campaign so far, prepare for picket practice on Thursday, and take decisions about next steps. [a motion was included in the original email notice]
Members in Crewe may remember the picketing that was carried out during the national dispute of Jobs, Pay and Pensions. Whilst the weather conditions were not ideal (-15°C was recorded one snowy morning), there was a spirited nature to the singing, dancing and placard waving with excellent catering and snowman construction.
In case the company does not back down, picket practice has been arranged for Thursday from 12 noon outside CRE02, on the pavement opposite the front of the building. A good turnout is essential as we hope for media coverage.
