From The Socialist newspaper, 14 June 2007

Come to the National Shop Stewards Network Founding Conference

Hundreds of shop stewards from across Britain gathered in London last October to found a grassroots network capable of mobilising trade unionists to fight for workers' rights.

Called by the RMT transport workers' union, the conference was supported by the TGWU, CWU, PCS, NUJ, NUM, CYMU, FBU, POA and BFAWU.

The meeting agreed to organise a shop stewards' conference.

As well as the main speakers (see below) a number of shop stewards and workplace representatives will be speaking on the struggle against the management offensive in the workplace.

Shop stewards from across Britain will be attending this very important conference to express their anger at the bosses' attacks on their union rights, jobs and standards of living

They will be calling for the trade union movement to step up its demands for the repeal of the anti-union laws, for legal rights at work from day one of employment. They will be arguing for an end to the privatisation of public services, to oppose the pay freeze on the public sector and to support the struggle in the NHS against cuts and closures.

Founding Conference of the National Shop Stewards Network

Saturday 7 July, 11am-5pm, South Camden Community School, Carrington Street, London NW11RG

Speakers

Mark Serwotka, general secretary Public and Commercial Services union (PCS), Janice Godrich, president PCS, Bob Crow general secretary RMT

For more details see www.shopstewards.net or email info@shopstewards.net. Send 5 per delegate to NSSN c/o Unity House, 39 Chalton Street, London NW1 1JD.
