Dear _______________ MP,

Funding Classes for Migrant Workers (ESOL Classes)

As you may know, fee remission for English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) is to
end from next September. This means that low paid migrant workers, including many Usdaw
members, will need to find a significant sum to attend classes to learn English. As the vast
majority of migrant workers earn less than £5.99 per hour, learning English will be put
beyond their means.

Learning English helps promote social integration, citizenship and understanding of
employment rights. It helps combat social isolation, racism and the influence of extremists
like the BNP.

Helen Jones has introduced a Parliamentary Early Day Motion (EDM 383 English for
Speakers of Other Languages Funding) calling for the Government to ensure that affordable
access to ESOL is available for low paid migrant workers.

I would ask you to support Helen's EDM and to support the campaign to provide affordable
ESOL for low paid migrant workers.

Yours sincerely
