Monday 18 July 6pm

Indian YMCA, 41 Fitzroy Square, W1T 6AQ

Called by the NSSN, RMT, FBU, PCS, CWU


TUC must organise 24-hour public sector strike


Speakers:

Chris Baugh Assistant General Secretary PCS
Martin Powell-Davies NUT executive (pc)
Steve Hedley RMT London organiser
Mark Palfrey CWU London divisional rep
Ben Sprung FBU London organiser

Teachers, lecturers and civil servants put down a marker in a one-day strike- this is just the beginning!

Underground bosses hell-bent on victimising trade unionists in action - but not when workers use their full power with a serious programme of action!

Closures forced through by Royal Mail! What next? Unions ready to fight privatisation!

Firefighters prepare to defend the London fire service in the face of the meltdown of AssetCo, the private company that supplies fleet. There can be no doubt the government's cuts agenda is very much alive.

The welfare state and public services are in mortal danger. Living standards are being undercut.

Lives are put on hold.

London workers look to Athens and ask, "Will this be London further down the line?"

Yes, it could be!

But why do we have to go through the desperate experiences of Greek workers driven down to the poverty line. Let's learn from them.

Don't let's simply wait for the really bad times to descend on us. Let's get organising right now against this millionaire government and its banker and big business buddies, who are biting great chunks out of our public services, forcing workers into slave wages and poverty conditions.

The National Shop Stewards Network conference in June 2011 agreed to call a lobby of the TUC congress on Sunday 11 September, to press the demand for a public sector general strike in the autumn.

Some of the strongest and most militant unions in London invite you to come along to discuss what we can do now to help get all our unions up for concerted action to stop ALL cuts.
