SUAA meeting Our meeting this month, to discuss and plan our work, will be on TUESDAY, 11th June 2019, in the small meeting room at the Quaker Meeting House, 2 Cooper Street, Stockport, SK1 3DW from 7 pm to 9 pm. The Quaker Meeting House is only a short distance from the bus stops on the A6. Turn down Longshut Lane at the crossroads south of the college and the Co-op store, heading towards Hillgate. You will pass the newly rebuilt meeting house at the junction with Hillgate. Entrance is from the car park at the rear of the building, on Cooper Street. There is disabled access and toilets and we have use of the kitchen facilities.
SUAA Leaflet: A Catalogue Of Cuts Please read/download our latest leaflet that outlines some of the worst cuts associated with austerity.
Stop and Scrap Universal Credit Get rid of the Work Capability Assessment Get rid of Workfare End the sanctions regime Increase social security payments based on people’s needs Outlaw zero hours contracts Create permanent jobs on trade union rates of pay, through investment in renewable energy projects, house building, public transport and caring services
Above all else solidarity with the working class victims of a vicious government representing the interests of the 1% super rich population. We receive many expressions of appreciation for the support demonstrated from the people we talk to at the jobcentre.
Please join us! Get well wrapped up at this exposed location in our town! And if you travel to support the demonstration but it is raining on arrival, we shelter on such occasions in the Cafe on the Square in St. Peters Square while we wait to see if it fairs up. If you are new to our jobcentre campaign we'll get you a coffee and would love to chat.
Finally, please follow Kate Belgrave's blog for anonymised reports on some of the issues we come across at the jobcentre : http://www.katebelgrave.com/
PETITION FOR TRANSPARENCY OF PIP AND WCA ASSESSMENTS
There are far too many reports of inaccurate and just plain untruthful reports of Personal Independence Payment and Work Capability assessment consultations being produced by the DWP's private contractors - ATOS, Capita and Maximus.
This petition sponsored by SUAA calls for the DWP to produce and to supply to all persons who undergo an assessment, an audio recording thereof.
This system already operates, for PIP assessments, in Scotland.
