The IWGB, has entered into dispute with the employers, BBW.  We are asking them to resolve the following issues:

  • a recognition agreement
  • the 3 Cosas demands for equal sick pay, holidays and pensions
  • a guarantee of the continued employment of those workers at the Garden Halls of residence affected by planned changes.

The IWGB General Secretary Chris Ford has written formally to BBW management. As soon as we have a response, we will be in touch to organise a meeting of all members to discuss the next steps in the dispute, including possible strike action.

Any questions, please contact branch secretary Jason Moyer-Lee at
