The National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) steering committee has agreed to bring the fifth annual NSSN conference forward to Saturday 11 June. This is to avoid a clash with the Durham Miners' Gala and other labour movement events around the same time.
The conference will be taking place in the run-up to potential strike action by five or more unions against the Con-Dems' attacks on public sector pensions. The other main themes of the conference will be fighting the anti-union laws and defending the NHS. The conference will be at the South Camden Community School from 11.30am to 4pm. Registration will begin at 10.30am.

The elections for Unison's national executive council run from 11 April to 13 May, when members have a chance to elect the fighting leadership needed to counter the massive attacks on jobs and services being waged by the Con-Dem government and by councils.
Readers of the Socialist in Unison are encouraged to vote for candidates on the left slate. For more information see: www.socialistparty.org.uk/articles/11571/30-03-2011/vote-for-a-fighting-democratic-unison-leadership.
