Liverpool: a chance to show workers’ solidarity

Issue No. 1924

STRIKING SOCIAL workers in Lib Dem controlled Liverpool council are appealing for wider support and backing for a national demonstration in the city called by their union, Unison.

“Every branch of the union should ensure there is a good delegation to the demonstration on Saturday 6 November,” says Rahul Patel, secretary of the Unison branch at Westminster council.

“The Liverpool social workstrikers have faced a campaign of intimidation by management.

“It is messages of support and solidarity that have so far helped maintain their resolve.

“The march is an opportunity for the whole of the union to show its support and to help win what has become a very important dispute.”

* After the march there will be a meeting of the Unison United Left.
