Brent Trades Council's next meeting will be an online rally "Toward Zero Covid: a campaign to beat the pandemic in Brent" on Wednesday February 24th at 7pm.
Our panel of speakers include :
Helen O'Connor, GMB and ex-nurse, who leads on this campaign on the People's Assembly
Shelly Asquith from the TUC who has been invited to speak on the importance of unionisation and working with Labour councils
Dr Jonathan Fluxman from Unite Doctors branch on the proposed campaign in Brent urging Brent Council to provide hotel accommodation when a family member needs to self-isolate . Households are the most common place for spread of the virus and we have many low-income overcrowded households in Brent, an important reason for the high death rate in the borough.
