May Day – fighting not just for roses

members of Leeds KONP marching with banner on the May day march through Leeds city centreLeeds KONP are proud to be marching alongside colleagues from across different unions. We talked with one man who greatly admired Bevan and marched to London during the run up to the introduction of the NHS.

Trade unions have faced relentless onslaughts over the years from attempts by employers to introduce unfair working conditions, removal of leave, pensions and faced death in protest. The May Day march is growing steadily in Leeds.

Leeds KONP give full support to the Doncaster colleagues who are continuing with strike action because Care UK who have taken over the NHS staff, are trying to persuade them to agree to work with appalling working conditions.

Leeds KONP does not support organisations that put profits before patients and profits before staff who care for them.
