Waltham Forest Trades Council notes that there has been a lack of awareness raised in mainstream media of legacy claimants who have not received any additional support during the Coronavirus pandemic.
This has led to a widespread issue in that the public have, as a consequence, not been informed of 2.5 million legacy claimants suffering increased hardship throughout this period.
This trades council resolves to
- Pledge our support for the DPAC #20More4All Campaign by sending a message of support to DPAC and posting it on our trades council social media pages.
- Ensure any of our future campaigning by or around the £20 a week uplift is inclusive of those on legacy benefits, refering to #20More4All.
