Petition update

2000 signatutes so far!

Defend Small Heath School

Jan 14, 2016 — Dear All,

Over 2000 people have signed the petition calling for the suspension of NUT Rep Simon O'Hara to be lifted and against the threat of academisation at Small Heath School in Birmingham.

Trade unionists at the school are serious about fighting over both of these issues. Beginning next Tuesday (19th January) NUT members will be striking for three days a week for the next three weeks. They will also begin a ballot for strike action against the victimisation of their Rep. NASUWT members will also be striking next week from Wednesday to Thursday and look set to continue with the same tempo of action as the NUT. We may also see other unions joining the action too.

On top of this there will be street stalls and leafleting this Saturday in Small Heath (meet 2pm at the junction of Coventry Road and Muntz St) and a public meeting on the first strike day on Tuesday from 4.30-6.30pm at the Bia Lounge, 45-47 Golden Hillock Road, Small Heath, Birmingham B10 0JU. There will be a mixture of union and community speakers - if you can, come along and invite others to attend. It would be great to see anyone with a link to the school including former students and parents from feeder schools there as well as the community and other trade unionists.

There are more details at the 'Reinstate Simon O'Hara' Facebook page.

Please keep sharing the petition and get in contact if you can help with the campaign in any way.

Thanks for your solidarity - it makes a huge difference to the staff at the school knowing that they have the support of thousands of people across the country.

Keep fighting for people power!
