Local union colleagues have asked us to circulate information on this community campaign in East London
The Old Spotted Dog ground is London’s oldest senior football ground and has a great history. It has been home to Clapton Football club since 1887, it also signed England’s first black football player, Walter Tull in 1908 who went onto play professional football for Tottenham Hotspur and Northampton Town.
Situated in Forest Gate, Newham, the ground provides a community space for one of the poorest and most ethnically diverse boroughs in London. The current fan base is based on a strong anti sexist, anti racist and anti homophobic ethos and does lots of work in the community e.g. organises regular foodbank collections, works with local schools, worked with local residents to clear fly-tipping from the grounds of the Old Spotted Dog public house, raised funds for Newham Action on Domestic Violence and helped to launch a successful appeal for funds for ‘Paris’, Newham’s only LGBTQ youth group.
You can follow the progress of the campaign through the following twitter account @SaveTheOSD
In 1985 during the teachers’ pay strike, our union branch held a mass rally at this football ground. In the early 1990s, the “Newham Needs” campaign (in which our branch was a lead player) and the NJTUC held a rally there.
PCS members working as conciliators at ACAS began action short of strike on Wednesday 25 April which will include no obligation to undertake any reactive or proactive work on fast-track early conciliation cases or employment tribunal cases.
The dispute centres on imposed changes on staff, including the downgrading of conciliation work and increases to already heavy workloads. Conciliator members are trying to manage the unmanageable as a result of a restructure programme has been running for two years.
The planned action also includes a one-day strike on 11 May and a 2-day strike on 6 and 7 June.
