Upcoming meeting

We seem to be having a bit of a quiet period at the moment, so are going to ease up on the frequency of meetings for the time being. As such, there is no meeting on Tuesday 26th August. Next meeting is Tuesday 2nd Sept, 7.30pm at Kebele. 

What’s in a name?

So, how about this for a good example of winning with mimimum effort?! Now we know not all wins will be this easy but… winning without fighting is an important principle and aspiration of any good martial art. So when we heard this from a supporter of Bristol Solidarity Network we felt sure we are on the right path!

Management at Churchill Contract Services were refusing to pay £320 holiday pay owed to one of their workers. The worker’s texts and calls were met with a wall of silence until… he let management know that he would be seeking help from and unleashing the forces of Bristol Solidarity Network. This seemed to do the trick and they were straight on the phone offering payment, presumably after having done a bit of homework and deciding that an impending embarrassing and costly campaign against them was not worth the trouble – or £320. Job done. We send our congratulations and solidarity to the worker and a big thumbs up for not allowing himself to be walked over by greedy bosses. We also look forward to our name becoming a household name, bogeyman style, for bosses and landlords everywhere in Bristol.
