SALFORD NOVEMBER 30TH MARCH

Bexley Square
Chapel St 

Salford Against The Cuts and Salford TUC is organizing a rally in Bexley Square followed by a march to the mass rally in Manchester City Centre this Wednesday 30th November.

Over three million people nationally will be on strike that day and this is Salford showing its anger against the ConDem Government's attack on pensions.

Full story here


This Wednesday, 30th November, around three million public sector workers, including teachers, firemen, council workers and civil servants, will be on strike to defend their pensions against attacks by the ConDem Government.

As part of the TUC National Day Of Action, Salford TUC, Salford Against The Cuts and Salford Unison, amongst others, are supporting a rally at Bexley Square, followed by a Salford march into Manchester city centre to meet up with a huge rally taking place in Whitworth Park.

"November 30th is primarily about workers saying to this Government that we will not stand for anything less than a decent retirement after a lifetime of public service" says Steve North, branch secretary for Salford City Unison

"However, this rally is also about the people of Salford telling the Government that we will continue to fight their brutal cuts agenda" he adds "As well as public sector workers, we will have private sector workers and pensioners and service user representatives speaking on the day. It's about all of us."

Paul Foley, one of the Manchester march co-ordinators and Unison Health Organiser, expects thousands of workers to attend.

"Next Wednesday, Manchester will witness the biggest level of industrial action in a generation" he says "Local Government, Health, School, University, Civil Service, Police and Justice workers from all over the city will be striking and marching to defend their pensions. The message will be clear, Ministers' proposals to make public sector workers work longer, pay more and get less in their pensions are unfair.

"The economic woes of the country were not caused by dedicated public sector workers who provide essential services to the vulnerable in society" he adds "There is no justification to the Ministers' attacks on our members' pensions."
