Going from Strength to Strength - Living Rent Members in Dundee are having their next meeting on Wednesday the 12th of October at 6pm.
At the September meeting members elected an Organising Team to steer us through the next few months and also chose to focus on Member Defence in this time.
As a community-based union run by and for our members, member defence is how we protect ourselves against unaffordable and unfair housing conditions in Dundee and across Scotland. Since Living Rent’s conception, we have successfully organised member defence activities for hundreds of members in private, public and social housing.
In Dundee, earlier this year, we successfully overturned the eviction of one of our members as well as securing long awaited repairs for them and others in the block. On top of this - the letting agency in question committed to an overhaul of their communications and complaints procedures.
We'll also make time in this meeting to talk a bit more about National Campaigns - and looking at the emergency Rent Freeze and Eviction Moratorium that we recently won in more detail.
So come along!! No experience necessary. Together we support each other in developing our knowledge and skills and use the expertise we have as renters to guide us.
If you are having your own housing issues, or you want to add a point to the agenda, or need some support with the accessibility of the meeting - get in touch with the local organiser, Kerri.
