BRIGHTON BRANCH MEETING

JULY 18th 1995

Members present 33 members.

As this meeting was called on a day of the current dispute our E.C. Member for No.1 district addressed the meeting. Bill explained that the strike was 100%, and that the members who had voted against this action still showed their support by following the call to stop work. He pointed out the reasons why we were taking this action of withdrawing our labour and why we were using a fortnightly cycle, he went on to tell of the B.R.B.s response to all of our points regarding what we have had to give, yet they still maintain that they have nothing more to give in return.

On Wednesday 19th the L.U.L. ballot would also be known, he was sure it would be a yes vote and that the pressure would start to be applied to try and break the dispute and that standing together we can beat these threats to force us back, we do have support from many quarters, but our real strength was our membership. Many points were raised in a question and answer period and our chairman thank our E.C. member for attending the meeting.
