NSSN to lobby TUC General Council on 24 April

The National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) has called a lobby of the TUC General Council on Wednesday 24th April.

The NSSN has been campaigning for the maximum coordinated strike action to stop the cuts. It organised a lobby of the TUC conference last September which brought up to 1,000 union activists to Brighton.

It was delighted that the Prison Officers Association motion for the TUC to 'consider the practicalities' of a general strike was passed.

As a result of the POA motion, the TUC general council has been consulting with unions. This should lead to the TUC and the unions organising a joint strike that would seriously confront the Con-Dem cuts. The next meeting of the TUC general council is on 24th April.

The NSSN will be lobbying this meeting of the union leaders for them to name the date for a 24-hour general strike.

There are any number of issues that could be the basis for common action - pay, redundancies, pensions, terms and conditions.

The PCS union is taking national strike action on these very items - starting on Budget Day, 20th March.

The NSSN calls on all other public sector unions to urgently meet with the PCS to discuss coordinating ballots and action.

There should then be a call out to all workers in the private sector to coordinate live disputes with any such action.

This can be the route to strikes on a maximum scale. An ideal date could be June - when chancellor George Osborne sets out the next tranche of cuts for the year of the next general election.
