Firefighters’ union leader Matt Wrack is to join the platform at the Manchester Unite the Resistance meeting this Sunday after the TUC demo and rally. With firefighters taking their first national strike against the attack on their pensions last Wednesday, it’ll be great to hear from Matt.
The FBU leader will join a speaker from the successful Hovis strike against zero hours contracts, bakers’ union president Ian Hodson and speakers from the Glasgow social care workers walkout, the Future Directions strike, Avis Gilmore from the NUT (North West regional secretary) and a national officer from the CWU who’ve just started their strike ballot this week.
The event will run from 3pm onwards at the Jabez Clegg, 2 Portsmouth Street, Manchester, M13, 9GB Go here for a map of the venue: http://goo.gl/maps/cC3ns
