Recently two of our officers attended an international March in Hamburg. Mukesh is our international officer and Nigel our retired Officer. The main focus of the march was the breaking of chains. They where campaigning for the kindergarten and childcare workers who are locked into temporary contracts, some lasting only 6 months or a term. The Ver-di reps and officers where glad to have support from the branch on this important issue.
While in Hamburg Nigel and Mukesh did plenty of networking building on Nigel’s work as our previous international officer. They met with other reps and from this they will hopefully be developing links with a local branch of Ver-di in Hamburg with the aim of twinning with them. This is an exciting development for the branch and more news will follow.
