More Action On Leisure Service Privatisation

With potential privatisation still looming over leisure centres around Birmingham, we are continuing to campaign, and are asking people to take our petition to their local leisure centre, let people know about the threat and gather signatures to let the council know that we do not want private companies profiting from our public services. We’ve already got hundreds of signatures, we need to make that thousands.

You can download the petition here.

Saturday 21st April is the next day of action, let us know if you can do a stall or petitioning session at your leisure centre and we’ll publicise it here and get other people to come along. Last time there were stalls at Moseley Road Baths and Handsworth, Northfield & Sparkhill leisure centres.

Saturday 21st April:

Handsworth Against the Cuts urges all its supporters to use this weekend to get petitions filled in. We have found that people are very willing to sign on the door. Here is Handsworth’s version: (see attachment).

Please deliver petitions to the address given on the petition or contact Alistair 07846490408 or Sue on 07818068856.
We are keen to get the petitions handed in to our councillors ”

    Reblogged this on Representing the Mambo and commented:
    An important issue in Birmingham. Leisure facilities are under huge pressure. Staff at ‘council’ pools now run by private companies in Birmingham are earning between a third and a quarter less than the pools that are under council control. Considering that the council staff aren’t earning loads anyway, this is outrageous and its an issue I’ll come back to.
