Over 70 people attended a public meeting to relaunch Fenlands trades council in Cambridgeshire last Saturday.

Trade union barrister John Hendy QC spoke and RMT general secretary Bob Crow chaired the meeting.

Local union reps attended from a number of public and private sector workplaces.

There was a mood for a continued fight over pensions and a resolve to tackle racism against eastern European migrant workers. Reps also plan to oppose the racist British Freedom Party which is trying to organise in the area.
