DWP sanctions cranked up
DEMONSTRATE THURSDAY 11th JULY 10am – 12 noon
NO TO SANCTIONS - NO TO WORKFARE - NO TO AUSTERITY
Gather 10am onwards at Leith Job Centre, 199 Commercial Street, EH6 6QP
Part of the Boycott Workfare Week of Action against Workfare
This is government policy, not the fault of the ordinary Jobcentre staff. They too are under attack from government policy which seeks to further undermine their pay, conditions and job security. Job centre workers are now only given temporary contracts, some are actually facing the sack and could easily end up on the other side of the counter.
We are organising to stop sanctions being imposed on us. If you have a tricky interview at the Job Centre, take a friend or adviser with you, this is your right. You also have the right to challenge sanctions. Ask for the decision to be reviewed and appeal against the benefit cut. If need be, we can alert our Edinburgh Coalition Against Poverty solidarity network to have a peaceful demonstration INSIDE the Job Centre.
