Nottingham Claimants’ Union formed


Welfare not workfare placard on a demonstration

Update December 2011: – this initiative did not last but please see activities of
Nottingham Defence Campaign instead.

There hasn’t been a claimants’ group in Nottingham since the time of Nottingham Claimants Action in the late 1990s. With the news that the ConDem government is introducing workfare on top of all of the changes to benefits already announced, the gloves are off and a claimants’ organisation is needed more than ever. Nottingham Claimants’ Union has now been set up and to get things going there will be a meeting with a guest speaker from Derbyshire Unemployed Workers’ Centres this Wednesday.

For details about the initiative and the meeting, see Nottingham Claimants’ Union article on Notts Indymedia and get in touch.

  1. I think that the people attending all of these ‘demos’ should be out working or looking for jobs!

  2. Yes, in fact, it’s been scientifically proven that if you look hard enough for a job you’ll find one will pop into existence. Be careful, however, as the subatomic particles will not coalesce unless you are genuinely willing to do at least 1 honest day’s work per day’s pay (as measured by the well-established Stakhanov scale).

  3. Twenty Twenty Productions Ltd is looking for recently unemployed people for a new television series. Did the recession affect your career? Are you struggling to find work after being made redundant? Are you keen to work, but just can’t find a job? If so we’d love to hear from you. If you’d like to know more, live in the Midlands and are happy to have an informal chat with one of our team, please email welfare@twentytwenty.tv and leave your name and age, and the best number to call you back on.

    Alternatively you can call me asap on: 07932 393974
