Lambeth UNISON - Library workers on strike this week


 ​ 

PRESS RELEASE 21 March 2016

Lambeth Library workers on strike 22 and 23 March

Consultative ballot for council wide action at 85%

On April 1st 2016: Carnegie and Minet Libraries will be closed forever.

No, it is not a hoax for the Fools Day.

It’s a date that all citizens of Lambeth will always remember with shame.

Library workers are striking on 22 and 23 March to stop the closure of four libraries. 

The council’s vague plans to ‘save money’ will lose four libraries from the borough - including Waterloo to be sold and Upper Norwood to be handed over to a trust that doesn’t have to run a library. 

Tate South Lambeth was also at risk but has been given a temporary reprieve to stay open, mainly thanks to the huge campaign against closures. 

These plans have no support in the wider community.

UNISON are holding a consultative ballot across the council –the first one in years- in solidarity with the library staff. The ballot will close on Wednesday 23 March but so far 85% are in favour of a council wide strike to save the libraries. 
Librarian and Unison steward Tim O’Dell said: “Councillors hoped they could push things through quietly but they’ve got a fight on their hands – the community are preparing legal action and have organised a major campaign - and we, the staff, are taking the only action which we can – to strike.  We have just three weeks before they start removing books and padlocking doors. They can’t be allowed to give away our libraries”

On 22 March there will be a Picket and Rhyme (named from the usual Wriggle and rhyme) story time session for children, held by striking librarians in Windrush square from 10.45am.

Accommodation Wanted - excellent references on request

Accommodation Wanted

37 year old male looking for one bed flat/similar in SE11 or surrounding areas.

I have lived in Kennington for 14 years and due to a change in circumstances now need to find alternative accommodation - preferably in the same area.

My main occupation is as an actor which I support through several part-time jobs working for local charities and social enterprises based in Walworth and Stockwell.

As my income is low, I can only offer below market rate in rent. However I can offer to ensure a property is protected and well maintained – much as I have done for the last 13 years.
Most of my work is home-based and as such can guarantee spaces are kept clean, pest-free and repairs are up to date. I have had frequent experience of organising local tradespeople to carry out checks and work on the property.

I am quiet living, do not smoke and do not keep pets.

Ideally I would like to find somewhere self-contained as am now a little old for flatmates.

I can provide excellent references on request.

To get in touch please contact Daniel via kenningtoncompanions@gmail.com

BreadMaking Course in Kennington

Hello,

I am running a low-cost beginner’s bread-making course at the Bee Urban collective, in Kennington Park across three weekend days in April.  We’ll be making easy yeasted breads and sourdough, then baking it all in their woodfired cob-oven.  I wonder if I could ask you to include the information in your “Kennington News” mail-out?  Here’s the link:
