The IWW is currently leading on a campaign to get YHA workers paid a living wage.
This campaign was first started by workers at one of the YHA hostels, and it soon ballooned in to something a lot bigger. Support came from organsations and individuals up and down the country, as well as from other YHA workers.
However the IWW become involved when the messages for help become too much. Since January we’ve been trying to organise and support workers in the YHA as much as possible. This, of course, has been completely discreet.
If you’re working in the YHA and would like support, and if you just want to know you’re not alone in facing this problem, then please email yha [at] iww [dot] ork [dot] uk
