Defend Ricky Jones

Ricky Jones has been the Residential Caretaker for William Patten Primary School for 10 years. He is also the Unison Convenor for Hackney Education
He lives on the school site with his wife and 3 children, two of whom have been born since living there on the premises and two of whom attend the Primary School.

On 12 February 2008 the school management presented Ricky with paperwork informing him of the proposal to make the position of Residential Caretaker redundant.

If this proposal goes ahead Ricky and his young family will be evicted from their home. This will be the final act in a series of acts of victimisation which Ricky has endured because he is an effective trade unionist.

Some 35 NUT members at Haggerston School, East London, face the prospect of disciplinary action (up to dismisssal for gross misconduct) for respecting a picket line mounted by striking members of the T&G/Unite who work for the multinational privateer, Sodexho, in the school's PFI-built canteen.

Arnos Grove picket 30 June 2004


OK, so there is no Tube in Hackney, but plenty of people in the Borough use London Underground, and a fair few of us work on it.



Finsbury Park RMT branch is affiliated to Hackney TUC, and represents train drivers, revenue inspectors and station staff on the Victoria and Piccadilly lines, and cleaners across the whole Underground.

Hortance Mbebo


Hortance Mbebo is facing deportation, despite being married to UK citizen and Hackney Council worker Peter Louw. Hackney UNISON is campaigning to stop this unjust deportation. The union branch says: "This makes a mockery of the Home Office's motto to build a safe, just and tolerant society".
