Planning meeting for Picket of Atos Recruitment Evening

Thursday 26th May
@ The Free Hetherington
The Glasgow University Occupation
13 University Gardens
Just off University Avenue
Glasgow University Campus

Atos are currently recruiting more medical professionals to carry out new assessments on all people on sickness benefits.  They are actively carrying out the Government’s plan of cutting sickness benefits by £250 billion.  In recent trials of their largely unreliable new computerised medical test most people have their benefits cut, but most people win their case when they appeal with the help of an advice centre.  Atos will be also recruiting more staff to carry out these distressing and degrading tests on all people on Disability Living Allowance for the first time, where the plan is to cut the budget by 20%.  The Government are cutting these benefits to reduce the debt caused by bankers.  The most vulnerable in society are being made to pay for the greed of the rich and the inevitable booms and busts of capitalist economics. There is a recruitment evening at the Atos Medical Assessment Centre, Corunna House, 29 Cadogon Street on Monday 6th June between 6pm and 8pm.
