It’s on. Three unions have named the day for their next joint strike—Wednesday 28 March.
The PCS civil service workers’ union, the NUT teachers’ union and the UCU lecturers’ union all plan to walk out that day.
And more unions could come in behind them, including sections of the huge Unite union. Up to 750,000 workers could strike altogether.
The pensions battle nearly stalled when some union leaders signed up to the government’s latest pensions deal. But 28 March can reinvigorate the struggle.
Across Europe ordinary people are fighting austerity. In Greece workers are launching massive general strikes and taking to the streets against cuts. 28 March is our chance to bring that Greek spirit to Britain.
