The TUC has called a national demonstration for Saturday 18th October which will become a focal point for everyone who wants to protest against cuts, austerity and the erosion of our standard of living. It will be given a greater edge by the talk of public sector strikes on Tuesday 14th October. In addition to local government workers who plan to strike, the ballots in health mean we could see mass action by health workers highlighting the attacks on the NHS too. Will other public sector workers and those in the private sector who have disputes manage to coordinate their action too?
UNITE has booked some transport for 18th October from around the country. This is likely to fill up quickly, so book your place now. This will also help ensure there's time to put on extra transport - it can be hard to find available coaches at the last minute.
