Online Meeting for Campaign to Increase Sick Pay at 6 O’Clock Tonight.

I realise that this is very last minute, but I got the news about it only yesterday evening. The Megaphone sent me the email below that the Centre for Progressive Change are holding an online meeting at 6 this evening about their campaign to raise sick pay.

The below is a message from a new campaign to win sick pay for every worker. Can you support this important cause by joining their campaign? See below. 

Dear David,

Whether you’re going through treatment for a long-term illness or you catch a virus, being ill shouldn’t mean not being able to pay the bills.

But a third of us only get statutory sick pay. That is just £99.35 a week, which is nowhere near enough to pay the bills.

Tomorrow, Wednesday 21st September at 6pm, the Centre for Progressive Change are launching a new campaign for better sick pay.

They are organising to extend sick pay to all workers and to bring sick pay in line with the living wage. Will you join the campaign?

Can you join the call at 6pm tomorrow (Wednesday) to hear the plan? Register here.

Will you write to your MP to see where they stand on sick pay, and invite them to a meeting to discuss it?

We demand better. Join us to win these changes to support workers during the cost of living crisis and keep working people healthy.

In solidarity,

Beth

I’ve registered to go to the meeting but haven’t committed myself to the letter just yet. I’ll let you know what’s discussed.
