This week, Andrew Devine became the 97th victim of the Hillsborough disaster to be unlawfully killed – but until there is real accountability for those responsible for covering up state crimes, there can never be justice. https://tribunemag.co.uk/2021/08/justice-for-the-97
CWU members in the postal and telecoms industries have rightly been recognised as key workers throughout the Covid crisis Now the government must properly recognise their vital contribution to our communities, particularly the unrivaled infrastructure of the Royal Mail @CWUnews
The thoughts of the whole union are with the family of Andrew Devine who has passed aged 55. Andrew was a former postal worker and union member who survived Hillsborough but was left with a devastating brain injury. A coroner has concluded that he was unlawfully killed. #JFT97❤️

When the Prime Minister skips off to Chequers for a period of isolation in the sun, he’s on full pay. It’s a disgrace that 18 months into the pandemic, we still have workers who can’t isolate because they don’t get paid and wouldn’t be able to pay rent or put food on the table.
We can all feel the rising covid cases around us. In our households, workplaces and hospitals. Decent sick pay is one of the ways we can help tackle the crisis. Sign the petition: https://www.megaphone.org.uk/petitions/sickpayforall-guarantee-decent-sick-pay-for-every-worker
