Glasgow Solidarity Network
Deposit withheld? Illegal agency fees? Wages stolen? Repairs outstanding?
We are a volunteer group who will support your struggle to win back a deposit, wages, repairs, agency fees, or tackling bosses and landlords by use of collective direct action.
See the About section for more on how we go about this, or Contact Us if you would like to become part of the network or have a boss or landlord problem you need support to face.
Alone we may be weak - organised we can win!
