Branch Backs the 'Stop G4S' Campaign

The Unite Housing Workers branch is backing the 'Stop G4S' campaign. This campaign, a coalition of activists, trade unionists, and non-governmental organisations, aims to highlight G4S's global human rights abuses, and to stop it being awarded public service contracts. The Stop G4S campaigners say:


"Because G4S is involved in so many different human rights abuses and is taking over so many different aspects of the public sector, campaigning against it provides an opportunity for different groups and organisations to work together and make links between different issues, thereby creating a broader understanding of corporate power and the problems with private, profit-driven companies like G4S. From the repression of Palestinians and migrants, through to the dismantling of public services and the exploitation of workers, prisoners and service users, the unifying thread is a private company that is making vast profits while abusing people placed in its ‘care’."


For full details of the G4S and how you can get involved, please download the briefing for trade unionists, and visit their website.
