Workers to hit back on May Day
Tuesday 1 May is set to see a major strike in defence of public services as the PCS civil service workers’ union steps up its action against job cuts, low pay and privatisation.
Around a quarter of a million PCS members have already taken strike action this year.
Now the union wants to make May Day the date of its next national strike action.
Workers across the public sector are facing similar attacks on pay and cuts in services. The unions should turn this into a mass day of action in defence of public services. …
In London workers can bring all the battles together in the evening by attending the Organising for Fighting Unions May Day rally.
With the government weakened by scandal and growing opposition, union activists need to ram home their advantage.
May Day can be a rallying point for all those who want to hit back at New Labour’s assaults.
