The government plans to close the jobcentre in Wavertree and in Edge Hill – and that is after closing the jobcentre in Old Swan in 2012.
I will be presenting the petitions in Parliament on Tuesday to show the government that these jobcentres really matter to local people looking for work, local employers offering jobs and to the wider community who must not be deprived of such an important resource.
Today, I am joining PCS members and jobcentre users at a public meeting to raise our concerns and highlight our campaign to protect employment support available for people locally.
If these two jobcentres close, over 3,000 people will have to travel miles, incur extra costs and risk missing appointments that could lead to benefit sanctions.
This is totally unacceptable.
Please show your support for employment support in Liverpool Wavertree by signing my Save Our Jobcentres petition by clicking here today and sign the PCS union petition protesting at threatened closures across the city by clicking here.
Together, we can make a difference.
