Say no to rural poverty – save the AWB, rural workers pay and terms and conditions

Rally and photo opportunity
Monday 12 November
Assemble 12.30pm Old Palace Yard, Westminster, London
The coalition government is trying to scrap the agricultural wages board with just four weeks of consultation.
Without the AWB to negotiate pay and fair housing, wages will fall to the lowest legal wage possible. Bad employers will see this as the opportunity to cut pay and raise housing costs.
Unite has called on the government to extend the consultation on the future of the AWB to at least 12 weeks, to give rural workers a chance to get their views across.
This is fight for the future, the workers and the communities in which they live.  We must save the AWB.
Please help us make the government listen.
Join us on Monday 12th November to secure a decent, fair and proper consultation on the AWB’s future, to save the AWB and to stop the slide into rural poverty.
