A green industrial revolution for Stoke
This Saturday 28 September we’ll be talking to shoppers, workers and visitors to Stoke town centre. Come and join us in Campbell Place from 10am to 12 noon.
The country desperately needs change and we’ll be chatting to people about Labour’s vision to rebuild the country and rebuild Stoke-on-Trent. We are on the side of the poor, the hard-working, and the people who want a fair and just society for all.
It’s important that we tackle climate change but we believe we can do it in a way that helps people as well as the planet. The Green Industrial Revolution will create hundreds of jobs here in Stoke with Labour’s plans to build a massive factory to produce the batteries for electric cars. Stoke-on-Trent would be one of 3 cities to benefit from £1.8 billion of funding that would create 3,000 highly skilled and well paid jobs in the city.
We have launched exciting new policies showing that we will turn our country into a place that puts people before profit. We can’t wait to get out and tell people about how Labour will transform our communities:
- transforming bus services to put passengers before profit
- a 4-day working week without loss of pay within a decade
- a new Right to Food so we can end the need for food banks within 3 years
- more GP appointments
- prescription charges scrapped
- an end to poverty for people in work and a real living wage of at least £10 per hour
- free personal care because everyone deserves to grow old with dignity.
We’ll also be talking to local people about our campaign to stop the city council’s Tory-Independent coalition from demolishing the council-owned shops on Kingsway. This would include the restaurants Baby Russets, Thalii and Sangam 1, as well as the other shops on this road. We support the regeneration of the Spode site but this can’t be done at the expense of successful businesses. The petition, started by Andy Platt, has already been signed by hundreds of people. Please sign the petition by 2 October 2019.
