Why you should vote yes

Issue No. 2273

The government wants workers to work longer, pay more, and get less in their pensions at the end of it.

Pension contributions could soar by as much as 50 percent in many cases.

Some workers will be told they have to work until 67.

And at the end of it all they’ll get even less—even though the current average council worker’s pension, for example, is £4,200.

But 30 November is about more than that too.

It’s about fighting the Tories’ project of making working class people pay for the bankers’ crisis.

It’s about resisting their attempts to destroy the NHS and the welfare state, and fighting every cut.

30 November can be the start of a wave that can stop the Tories.

But first that means voting yes in the ballots—and doing everything you can in your workplace to persuade others to do the same.
