This summer the fight to defend our public services and the pay and conditions of workers who provide them is being stepped up. Firefighters have been taking action in defence of their pensions; local government and NHS workers are balloting for strike action against cuts in the real value of their pay; teachers are to strike against government attacks on their pay, pensions and conditions; and civil servants are consulting on taking taking national action. There is now the real possibility that at least some of these strikes will come together on one day in July in the same way as they did back in November 2011. Such coordinated action has the potential to stop the Coalition government’s onslaught on public services in its tracks.

Be part of a local network to take this battle forwards.

Osborne and Cameron say that their “plan is working”. It is certainly working for their friends in the banks and the boardrooms – but not for the rest of us.

Come along: discuss how we can unite and fight back.

Unite the Resistance, FBU, Unison, GMB, NUT, PCS, UCU, Islington Trades Council and IHOOPS (Islington Hands Off Our Public Services)
