We meet the second and fourth Thursday of each month, 7.30pm @ Kebele Social Centre, 14 Robertson Road, Easton. BS56JY Here’s our meetings for the next few months:
August 11th and 25th
September 8th and 22nd
The campaign by Bristol Industrial Workers of the World and ourselves to recover stolen wages from the manager of Cafe Amore has already started to pay off! Following our picket, and a large number of people starting to boycott the Cafe, the wages for one of the workers, Bonny, have now been paid in full.
However, Rhyannan who recieved no pay despite working for eight shifts, has yet to get a penny!
We will be holding a picket outside the Cafe from 12noon this Saturday (21st of Nov), to demand payment of her wages. We encourage anyone who wants to stand up for workers to join us. As with the last picket we will be friendly and light hearted – leafleting, chanting, singing and talking to any potential customers or passers by.
We are aware of other instances of wage theft and poor treatment of staff in central Bristol, if you are affected get in touch with us or the IWW.
Amore is located in Broadmead at 14 Nelson Street, BS1 2LE
See you there this Saturday at 12Noon
If you use Facebook please share the event!
Demo this Saturday! 12 noon.
Cafe Amore, 3 Nelson St, Bristol BS1 2DS.
Bristol Solidarity Network is joining forces with Bristol IWW to put the pressure on Cafe Amore management to pay stolen wages. We will be campaigning together to expose the greedy management and their mistreatment of employees and make sure workers are paid what they are owed. Bullying boss Goodarz Kiadeh has a reputation for exploiting workers and refusing to pay wages owed. Nobody likes a boss who steals workers’ wages. We won’t stop until this boss pays up!
Join the demonstration and stand together with Cafe Amore workers. Solidarity gets the goods!
Now’s a good time to join the network! We have regular meetings every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. We meet 7.30pm at Kebele Social Centre, 14 Robertson Road, Easton. BS5 6JY.
The next meetings for the rest of this year are:
What we believe…
Faced with relentless attacks on our quality of life from bosses, landlords, authorities and politicians, it is easy to give up the fight, keep our heads down, and accept that this is just the way things are.
Bristol Solidarity Network is determined to show another way, based on principles of solidarity and shared struggle. We are a group of local people committed to sticking together to overcome common problems we face. We can make real changes for the better through concerted, collective effort and direct action.
The story so far…
Since starting out in 2013 we have successfully accompanied workers and tenants to win their struggles against profiteering, bullying bosses and landlords. From putting a stop to management harassment and families being forced into homelessness to forcing bosses to pay stolen wages and a slum landlord to do the repairs, we have chalked up some solid victories. We have clearly seen the strength of working together to pile on the pressure. Solidarity is our best defence and direct action gets results!
If you share our ideas of getting organised to get used to winning, get in touch! We have regular meetings that are open to all who share our ideas and aims. We want to make sure that the solidarity network is open, accessible and welcoming. We have strength in numbers and as the network grows, so will our ability to win more victories!
