Shop stewards vote to lobby TUC

The National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) met last week and confirmed plans to lobby the TUC general council on 12 September in Manchester.

This follows the TUC’s decision not to hold a national demonstration when the government announces vicious spending cuts on 20 October.

The TUC said it would be better to protest next year.

The NSSN believes a national demonstration immediately after the cuts are announced would help build resistance. We will be lobbying the TUC general council to demand this.
