    In Leicester Market square there is a plaque commemorating the original march, how about meeting there during your visit to ‘relive’ the experience?

    If interested I’d be happy to promote this at my end.

    Let me know

    Good Luck and all best wishes

    Suggest that when you are in the Milton Keynes area that you visit Lavendon and take a look at the plaque on the church wall, placed there during the PMFJ 1986 (by Bedford ASTMS) to commemorate the original Jarrow Crusade and the site of the famous photo which is reproduced on the plaque. Here we are again. As Marx might have said: ‘I told you so!’

    i am writing to you as i have tried to find a contact E-mail address under the contact menu item, but all that i could find was a box to enter a message in and boxes to put your name in, as you can see the message which i whish to send you i think would be to big for the room in the box provided so why can you not make things dead simple by providing an E-mail address that people can contact you by without first having to go to your website, in the past i was a member of the TWGU and even though i am retired i do not wish to just lay back and say to hell with the rest of you i am alright, i want to see this country great again so i have put this e-petition together in the hope that the government will see that having one standard basic wage for all except the young and the apprentices who have there own wage plan, is just to ridicules to be of any use it is doing no more than making employers think twice about providing work with training to those that do not come within the special wage bands ,and it is keeping a large part of the unemployed adult population out of work, so have a good look and think hard about supporting my e-petition.

    i enclose a copy of my e-petition which asks the government to seek to get an agreement which would enable employers to pay a lower basic wage when they first employ someone and provide training for them, especially the workers that do not come within any of the age groups that are subject to any of the special wage rates and are not in an apprenticeship, who if they were would get the appropriate hourly rate for the job, this way it would encourage employers to provide jobs with training thus enable workers to advance themselves in the work force by getting not only a job but training as well.

    i include the e-petition and the link to the e-petition page in the e-petition file below if your members were to sign my e-petition it may go some way to getting the government to alter the rules on basic pay thus encouraging more employers to offer more jobs with training to the unemployed so that they can get into work and get the training that they need to advance themselves.

    from Mr. Vivian D Hankey retired

    my e-petition is below e-petition
    Responsible department: Department for Business, Innovation and Skills

    we the undersigned wish that that parliament seek to get an agreement that will allow employers to pay unskilled workers a lower basic wage while the employer is having to provide training at the start of a workers employment to bring the workers up to the required skill level for the job instead of having to pay the full national basic wage straight away thus making jobs and training more readily available to the unemployed .


    i include the link to the e-petition page as follows :
