JJB Strike Leader Sacked, Urgent Response Required


After the fantastic victory at JJB sports, the managerment have sacked Chris Riley, a leading steward that many will know from his speech at the Organising for Fighting Unions Conference. They have also threatened the convenor, Jon Stewart. - see their appeal for support from below.

The strikers won because of the fantastic solidarity of the strikers, and because the strike was organised to use supporters to put maximum pressure on the company through hitting David Whelan, the owner, at his Wigan football club, and by organising protests outside JJB stores throughout the country. They are calling for pickets to be set up at JJB stores and are planning further strike action if talks tomorrow are not successful.

Send messages of support today to Chris Riley at the email below.
Threaten to organise pickets at your local JJB stores. They can then use these messages in the meeting tomorrow.

We should then get the support back up and running.
Do collections, organise pickets of JJB stores, and invite a speaker to your meetings.

Did you see there is now a blog for this dispute at this address.

It advocates having a picket outside the local JJB Sports (or sprots as I keep miss typing) perhpas we should organise one in Cambridge - I haven't been thrown out of Red Lion court or whatever its called for months.

No I didn't. Thanks for that Jim. I have been busy organsing a picket in Oxford, which is where I am based now mainly although I'm sure there will be something in Cambridge. It is definately worth doing and getting a petition together or something.

By the way, how do you do the thing where you link somewhere with the blue writing (as you did above by writing this address)

You moved? Say hi to Dave Radford for me!

If you go to Web Monkey it's a really easy guide to the ABC's of html. And if you go to the Cheat sheet and scroll down to the section labeled 'links' all should become clear.

It's very simple - if you still have probs let me know.
