Working together makes us strong

"Communication between members of different unions is very important, particularly in view of the government's divide and rule tactics. Look at the magnificent show of workers' unity on 30 November.

With activists in different trade unions working together, the stronger we can organise and fight the austerity measures condemning people to poverty. Unity and solidarity is the only way to defeat these measures.

As a relatively new Unison shop steward, I have been supported by a more experienced Unite rep. She has shared regular updates from Unite on the pensions issue with me. In turn she has also seen the problems faced in a less militant branch!

Due to the complete blackout of information from Unison, this communication has been crucial.

It has kept Unison members informed and aware of both the government's and union leadership's lack of action and the continued activity of the members of other unions who have refused to give up the fight to defend their rights and conditions at work.

We urge everybody to think seriously about joining a union and then put the pressure on trade union leaders to do more."

Helen, Unison shop steward and Kerry, Unite shop steward
