SALFORD NOVEMBER 30TH MARCH

10:30am November 30th
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."

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL SPENT ALMOST £10,000 ON MIPIM PROPERTY JAUNT

Star date: 21st June 2018

COUNCIL SPENT £5,750 ON MIPIM PR IN SOUTH OF FRANCE

Salford Council spent almost £10,000 on the jaunt to the MIPIM property orgy in Cannes. A newly published contract register shows that, as well as the £4,022 costs for the City Mayor and two officers to go to the South of France paid by unknown private sector companies, the Council also spent £5,750 on marketing and PR for MIPIM.

The contract register also shows the Council is spending £9,500 on a 'Salford Story' press consultant, £118,000 on its failed 'digital community hub', over £14,000 on a 'leadership programme' and, er, £25,000 on milk and bread?

'WE RECOGNISE THE HISTORIC INTEREST'...BUT THEY'RE BEING DEMOLISHED!

Despite musical protests and petitions, the National Grid is adamant that the Salford gas holders, made famous in the Dirty Old Town anthem, will be demolished.

Campaigners are asking for the Grid to re-think a new use for the structures, like in many other towns and cities, but the company states that while "We recognise the historic interest in the Salford gasholder...the structure is being dismantled..."

DEVASTATING SURVEY OF NORTH WEST COUNCIL WORKERS SHOWS LOCAL SERVICES COLLAPSING

Star date: 18th June 2018

OVER 80% OF COUNCIL WORKERS HAVE NO CONFIDENCE IN SERVICES AND ALMOST 50% THINKING OF LEAVING THEIR JOBS

A survey of almost 1,500 local council workers in the North West reveals that 81% have no confidence in the future of local services, 49% are thinking of leaving their jobs, 54% believe their council no longer delivers quality services, and 45% think that their employer doesn't make the right decisions for the public.

The other results of the survey by UNISON to coincide with its local government conference make equally depressing reading, as the union states that "Vital local services in the North West are collapsing".

SALFORD TIME OUT FOR CARERS

Star date: 18th June 2018

TRIPS, CAKES, MASSAGE, ADVICE AND CHAT AS CARERS TAKE TIME OUT

"I was absolutely weary...I needed to get out of the house" Ernie

Caring for a loved one is indeed a labour of love but it can also be life consuming and draining. So a group called Time Out For Carers is making a difference, running weekly sessions where escapism is the order of the day.

There's free massages, trips out, advice on allowances, tea and coffee and cakes, but, most importantly, relaxed informal chats with carers who are all in the same position.
