Emergency action on pensions: lobby of TUC and national UtR meeting

Unite the Resistance is backing a lobby of the TUC on Thursday 12 January 2012, when it meets to discuss the government’s new pensions offer.

We are also calling an emergency national meeting on Saturday 14 January, with speakers including PCS leader Mark Serwotka, to discuss where next for the pensions fight after the TUC meeting.

The ‘deal’, which the TUC and some union leaders have signalled that they may accept, falls far short on all the major points. It still means that public sector workers will pay more for their pensions, work longer and receive less money when they retire.

The lobby will urge the TUC to reject the new offer and call more strikes like the magnificent action on 30 November to win a decent deal on pensions.

Lobby the TUC: 2pm, Thursday 12 January, Congress House, Great Russell Street, London WC1B 3LS

The emergency national meeting will give trade unionists from different unions the chance to get together after the TUC meets, to discuss what we do next to take the pensions fight forwards.

Unite the Resistance emergency national meeting, 12 noon to 4pm, Saturday 14 January, Friends Meeting House, Euston Road, central London

We will have more details of the event soon – please make a note in your diary now and watch this space for further information.

About the convention
We are a group of trade unionists from the NUT, PCS, Unison, Unite and UCU who have called a national convention to discuss the coordinated strike action set to take place on 30 November.

We are hoping that this conference will bring together trade union activists, anti-cuts campaigners, young people, students and pensioners in order to build the widest possible support for the strikes.
