Campaigns to prevent the closure of Coseley Swimming Baths and Pensnett High School, and sort out the single status pay agreement for council workers, protested outside Dudley council’s meeting on Monday of last week.

The Unison, Unite and NUT unions, with parents, school students and local campaigners, supported the demonstration.

Protesters stormed into the public gallery after the demonstration. They heckled the Tory mayor and leader of the council when they tried to justify their attacks upon our services.

The meeting was suspended by the mayor, the police were called and protesters were forced to leave. All three campaigns are determined to continue their fight.
