Organising for fighting unions in Birmingham

Issue No. 2041

Around 100 people came to an Organising for Fighting Unions meeting in Birmingham on Monday – despite roads around the venue being closed by police after a stabbing.

The audience was particularly enthused with PCS union leader Mark Serwotka’s calls for unity in defence of the public sector, and very interested in the PCS’s Make Your Vote Count initiative.

This will see May’s election candidates asked for their views on key issues. The Unison branch secretary from City hospital spoke about resistance to attacks on the NHS.
