This year's Salford May Day Parade will assemble at Bexley Square at noon on Monday 7th May, with a march to Sacred Trinity Church where, at 2pm, there will be speakers including Salford and Eccles MP, Rebecca Long Bailey, Kevin Lucas from UNISON, Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, and Annette Wright from Manchester TUC.

This year's Parade will be special as it's celebrating 150 years of the Trades Union Congress, which was founded by Manchester and Salford Trades Union Council.

Before this, on May Day itself, Tuesday 1st May, there's the first ever McDonald's strike in Greater Manchester, at the Oxford Road store in Manchester (M1 5EJ), linking in with another other four McDonald's stores across the country.

The McStrikers are demanding £10 an hour, guaranteed hours and for their right to join a union to be respected. There's a midnight picket from one minute after midnight on 1st May, and an early morning picket 7am-8am.

It's good that people like Mr woodling did report this it was a shocking incident i for one feel this could have been a police matter you cannot carry on with this shocking manner it not only brings down the good name of union but rubbishes claims of unity

l think the Barry Woodlings post does a number of things , first it breaches the Unite the union rules if he has made a complaint to the Union about the alleged incident , and then takes his complaint into the public arena for general discussion On the questions raised in this accusation There is a long standing complaint by Barry Woodling against the STUC and in particular Paul Kelly our President because Woodling has been barred from attending the STUC meetings as an observer because of his disruptive behaviour ,l have witnessed this man Woodling cause mayhem at quite a number of organisations and events he seems hell bent on goading and carjoling people into positions of confrontation. l have known and worked closely with Paul for a long time and to be honest he is a man of long standing principles , unlike Barry Woodling who swaps his politics and ideals more often than a than a banana republic swaps its leaders...and is quite experienced at bending the truth to suit his personal agenda. He recently accused another Union member and STUC member of threatening behaviour , the person concerned is a pensioner ... l suspect that if you pass by or come in contact with Woodling you divert your gaze as it could be construed by him to constitute threatening and or abusive behaviour ... Salford JC ........Unite and STUC member....

The President of Salford TUC Paul Kelly has been reported to the Unite Regional Office. The substance of the complaint is that he verbally abused a Unite member prior to a meeting of the Greater Manchester Community Branch on Tuesday 24th April at Unite Salford Quays Office. Furthermore he raised his fists in a threatening and menacing manner and threatened to beat the member up!

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.
