From The Socialist newspaper, 3 July 2013

Model motion from the NSSN

TUC - name the day for a 24-hour general strike

This branch notes that last year's TUC agreed to explore the practicalities of a general strike. However some union leaderships have obstructed any attempt at planning it.

The impact of austerity has continued to mount with the destruction of public services, a general decline in living standards and increasing numbers driven into poverty.

Faced with pay attacks some groups of workers have no alternative but to fight and our branch will continue to support any group of workers who ballot for action.

It is vital to link together the struggles to fight pay cuts and austerity; the need for a 24-hour general strike has never been greater.

This branch agrees to support the lobby of the TUC in Bournemouth on 8 September, initiated by the National Shop Stewards Network at its conference on 29 June, calling for the TUC to name the day for a 24-hour general strike.
