Campaigns news in brief
TUSC increases vote
Grimsby Socialist Party members are "well pleased" with Dave Mitchell's vote for the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) in the Croft Baker ward by-election for North East Lincolnshire council held on 23 July. Dave received 85 votes or 4.1% (an increase from 1.8% in May), fifth out of six candidates, this time beating the Greens.
Salford college campaign
Staff and students at Salford City College have been mobilising following the announcement of 57 job losses and plans to 'streamline' the existing teacher centred courses with a £1 million e-learning system. A protest on 9 July was a great success. More on the campaign can be found here.
