Cam Stocks, a medical student and BMA activist involving in the recent campaign against junior doctors' contracts, is hoping to come too and we're trying to help him by sharing a room and contributing what we can spare from our own funding (thanks everyone!).

Please give generously either here or directly to Cam's appeal: https://gogetfunding.com/camtolabornotes/

It seems like the start of the Labor Notes conference will be a busy day in Chicago, with the Chicago Teachers' Union and others calling a day of action to "Shut It Down" (https://actionnetwork.org/events/april-1-shut-down) in protest against corporate welfare, tax injustice and growing poverty; and for racial justice.

A big thank you to Unite Fujitsu North-West branch who, after polling members, decided to contribute £225 towards the delegation.

This brings our total raised so far to £1,193.00, less the fees charged by GoGetFunding and PayPal for online contributions.

The Chicago teachers, whose strike in 2012 has so much to teach us about how to deal with the Trade Union Bill's restrictions on the right to strike, have voted by 96% to strike on a 92% turnout against thousands of layoffs. Unless the negotiations make progress, the strike could take place from March 2016. The process should make the conference, taking place in Chicago in April, particularly interesting.
