TUSC against cuts

Walsall councillor's 'defy cuts' challenge to Labour

The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition-backed Walsall councillor Pete Smith has made a public appeal to the West Midlands borough's 28 Labour councillors:

"Instead of shedding crocodile tears and then moving an amendment at the February council meeting to restore just a few of the cuts yet, by implication, going along with millions of pounds of other cuts, take a much bolder approach. Refuse to vote for any budget that entails cuts to jobs or services.

The people of Walsall need to be made aware that given the present balance on Walsall council, where 31 councillors are not part of the controlling group of 29, a cuts budget can only get through if 28 Labour councillors allow it to go through."

Councillor Pete Smith, Democratic Labour, Blakenall ward

TUSC is an electoral alliance that stands against all cuts. It involves fighting trade unionists such as RMT transport union leader Bob Crow and socialists such as the Socialist Party.
