  • Recognise PCS Union at National Museums Liverpool Trading Cie
    Workplaces that recognise unions tends to have better levels of pay, happiness and do provide better services to their users. National Museums Liverpool is a public service and should not be exploiting its workers, many of them only earning just about the minimum wage. Many employees of the NML Trading company are local young people and they deserve as much respect as their colleagues employed directly by the museums. As NMLT is fully owned by the museums, museum bosses should not pretend they cannot act or ensure better standards. Yes there have been budget cuts for museums but surely union recognition would not cost a penny and if workers were getting the real Living Wage and decent hours of work, they would be spending their wages in the local economy and not having to consider claiming benefits.

  • Open sports centre cafe on a monday
    There is a pre school sports session on and then many use soft play after, would be good to get drink, snack or lunch. Vending machines wouldn't work for hot drinks and the snack one is filled with fizzy juice and chocolate and crisps

  • Pay unused holiday to employees as a bonus scheme
    This would create a much needed sense of being valued as a hard working and dedicated employee, for minimizing the need to arrange cover for holidays. Also it would solve the problem of an employer asking workers to take holiday to prevent loss of this well earned entitlement.

  • More SEN Training for teachers and TA'S in schools
    This very important because we need to help our children cope in society, prepare our children for a happy and meaningful life. My daughter is 12 years old, though out her primary school days struggled with going to school, crying a lot, her anxiety levels were through the roof. Only when my daughter was in year 4 the school had noticed my daughter had communication problems I was never told about until year 5. When my daughter was 3 years old I had taken to the GP, she was very violent so our GP referred my daughter over to the community paediatric services I got my local MP involved. After all those years of stress, anxiety, we finally received a outcome, on the 6th Dec 2016 my daughter was finally diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

  • British Man's Wife Denied a UK Visa
    We are a family of 5 people, 4 of us are British citizens. My wife in Venezuelan. The children are aged 8, 7 and 3 months. I live and work and pay taxes in the UK and my wife is being denied a UK visa for no reason. Our family is being destroyed by this ridiculous decision. My wife and children are currently in Venezuela while I am in the UK setting up a home and working so everything is ready for my family to come here. We have been separated for more than 10 months while waiting for the visa to be issued. We meet all of the visa requirements including my wife passing an English proficiency exam with the British Council in Venezuela and me being in full time employment earning more than the £18,600 wage threshold that is required by the British Government. Regardless of my stability in the UK, mine and our 3 children British nationality and citizenship the immigration department refused the visa and a Judge dismissed the appeal. The dismissal was based on my work situation but this is not a true or valid reason because I am in full time employment and earn more than the minimum wages required. There is no reason to deny my wife the visa yet she is being denied the visa. My children are suffering terribly by this unnecessary separation that has been enforced upon us by the British authorities. Their future is being taken from them by a decision that is wrong and is contradictory to the visa requirements. We meet every one of the requirements and we are still being denied the visa.

  • Stop the cuts to our essential Youth Provisions - Young People Matter!
    Stop the cuts to our essential Youth Provisions - Young People Matter! What does this mean for our children? Youth Clubs Drastic cuts to our youth service means there will only be 8 youth clubs or even less to cater for the fastest growing youth population in the country. This also means less funding available to third sector community based organisations. As a result there will be very little or no access to positive activities to keep young people engaged with during the evenings, weekends and over the holiday periods in most parts of the borough. Implications: Rise in crime and anti-social behaviour Careers Service Drastic cuts to the Careers Service means there will be very little or no one-to-one support and expert advice available to young people to help them move into further education, university, training, apprenticeship and employment. Tower Hamlets Careers Service saves tax payers around £53 million pounds a year by keeping youth unemployment down, based on research undertaken by the University of York. The Careers Service was instrumental in reducing youth unemployment in Tower Hamlets from 10.9% in 2006 to 3.4% in 2016 through its work in schools and in the community. The Careers Service helps young people with job preparation, realise their career aspirations, overcome barriers to progression and supports them onto higher learning and into good jobs. The Careers Service supports over 4,000 young people every year including those with special needs, looked after children and young offenders. The Careers Service is key to retention, social mobility, economic growth and reducing unemployment. Implications: Rise in youth unemployment Drop in educational attainment Targeted Youth Support Drastic cuts to Targeted Youth Support means there will be very little or no one-to-one support available to vulnerable young people with complex issues to get timely and coordinated help to prevent their problems from escalating or arising at all. Implications: Poor outcomes for our most vulnerable children Rise in long-term unemployment Cuts to these essential services will be detrimental to our children’s future progress and success. People's Alliance of Tower Hamlets call all concerned about young people's lives in Tower Hamlets to sign the petition.

  • Governments '96% project' for school attendance
    There is a 48 hour rule on contagious illness for a reason - so that the whole school isnt infected yet this new scheme penalises those parents who abide by the 48 hour rule putting the rest of the school at risk and not allowing our children to fully recover from their illnesses (reducing their immune systems and need for additional medical care in the future!) The 96% project will also put additional pressure on the NHS for everyday illnesses to be confirmed by already over stretched doctors just so the children arent marked as 'absent'. There needs to be a better way of targeting attendance that doesnt put a huge risk to the health of our schools and add pressure to the NHS, not to mention the cost to our schools in implementing this system.

  • End All Hunting on National Trust Land
    There is too much evidence that illegal hunting is taking place on National Trust Land. The National Trust should stop issuing licences to hunts unless all hunting activity on National Trust Land is independently monitored to ensure that no illegal hunting is taking place. That National Trust should be supporters and upholders of the law. 84% of the public to not want to see a repeal of the hunting act.
