with 2 comments

A conference of resistance and solidarity Saturday 30 January, Central Hall, Oldham Street, Manchester 11.30am-5pm Fight for every job Organise to stop the cuts Defend services and pensions Unite the public and private sectors Demand a million green jobs Jobs not bombs Defend migrant workers – jobs for all Speakers include: Mark Serwotka (PCS), Sally Hunt (UCU), Tony Kearns (CWU), Pete Murray (NUJ), Jerry Hicks (Unite), Mark Smith (former Vestas worker), Paul Brandon (Unite bus worker), Nahella Ashraf (chair, Greater Manchester Stop the War), Dave Chapple (Chair National Shop Stewards Network), Clara Osagiede (RMT cleaners’ secretary), Kevin Courtney (NUT national executive, personal capacity), Dot Gibson (General Secretary, National Pensioners Convention). More here.

We note that there will be discussion of a campaign against Welfare Reform. In our view this is a central concern. We have posted extensively on this.

The TUC sponsered campaign had not gained momentum.

This is not just an issue for trade unions, NGOs, and left political parties. It is time that those affected, unemployed,  single parents, those on Incapacity Benefits, make our voices heard.
