  • Force Living Wage Foundation to make service providers try and get real living wage for staff
    As it stands, if an Accredited Living Wage Service Provider gets their contract renewed without a competitive bid, they are under no obligation to try and get their staff the real living wage. This means a company can get accredited and some staff could be forced to wait an unlimited amount of years before the company will try and get them the real living wage. The service provider gets good PR out of being accredited, yet they can have hundreds or even thousands of staff on min wage and not even make the effort to try and end what the Living Wage Foundation call poverty wages.

  • Consult the People of the UK on the final Brexit deal
    An offer was recently made to MPs to vote on whether to accept the deal that is negotiated, or to leave without one. But there is a third option, which is to say no to both, and to stay in Europe. The original public debate on whether to leave Europe was full of misinformation and promises that have no prospect of being kept. As time moves on, it is becoming increasingly evident that the damage to the UK economy is significant, and is forecast to get even worse. In view of this stark reality the terms on which the UK will be obliged to quit Europe should be put to the nation as a whole, and not left to politicians alone.

  • Save Heysham Swimming Pool.
    Cllr Margaret Pattison, Cllr Janice Hanson, Cllr Darren Clifford and Cllr David Whittaker are very concerned with living in a seaside area such as Morecambe and Heysham that children should have a local pool to learn to swim. The pool has 54.000 visitors a year with 16 schools using the pool for swimming lessons and groups helping people to keep fit and healthy, if closed this would effect the health and safety of the people in Morecambe.

  • Get fair interest rates for student loans
    Students are currently paying 6.1% on the loans they take out so they can complete their education. TO put this in perspective, the government and large banks can borrow money at 0.25% interest. A 6.1% interest rate means that graduates will have to earn £55,000 a year just to keep up with the interest and prevent their loans getting larger. Its completely unrealistic, unsustainable and unfair. Its inevitable that most loans will never be re-paid and a generation will be saddled with un-payable debt. Interest rates are this high because the government has sold the debt on to private companies who hope to make a profit on young people trying to get an education and make their way in the world. We need people to go to university. We need a highly skilled workforce to drive the economy and tackle the urgent problems of the 21st Century with the creativity and innovation that Britain is known for. There is no excuse for charging students 24 times the base rate of interest. Ask Jo Johnson, Universities minister to ensure fair interest on student loans now.

  • Sponsorship for those who have committed on the basis of being able to pursue a career.
    Many of us who come from Australia and other Commonwealth countries moved here on working holidays and found a career. We are invested in the company and have been for a long period of time. Over the past years we've built lives, friendships and relationships which we do not wish to end or leave over this. We would be more than willing to agree to long standing contracts if it is what it takes, but we feel as it was promised and mentioned to us as a way of getting our commitment that it is now owed to us in a way. We love our jobs and our pubs and this is why we made a commitment, because we thought we could grow within the company and someday head these pubs.
