★ Build November 30

Pensions Justice LogoOver the next 2 weeks anyone in a union which is still balloting should go all out to make sure there is a big YES vote.

November 30 will be one of the biggest strikes Britain has ever seen. The ConDem’s attempt to split the movement this week should strengthen the resolve of every union activist to make sure N30 is a huge success.

Coming out of November 30 we need to make sure that the resistance to the ConDems increases on every front – pensions, cuts, wages, services, health, education, students. The ConDems have united the resistance, lets make sure it destroys them!

★ In Nottingham

Plans for meetings, pickets, demonstration and rally are in progress, coordinated by Notts Trades Union Council. Check its website and this space for more information.

TUC March on N30 – provisional route (as of 15/11/11)
