At this month's branch meeting Paul Burnham from Defend Council Housing came and spoke about the campaigning work DCH has been doing for over 23 years and what the key issues are today.
Rocketing rents, homelessness and shortage of housing - council housing is the non-market alternative that works. Council housing pays for itself, it helps build and strengthen communities, it means that rents are truly affordable, and that the landlord is accountable. DCH is also campaigning against council home demolitions and over the top increases in service charges for tenants.
UNITE Clerkenwell and St Pancras branch is supporting DCH and urges other UNITE and other union branches to do the same. Invite a speaker and find out what the campaign is all about and how you can get involved! https://www.facebook.com/DefendCouncilHousing/
