Housing revolt

MAJOR TRADE unions are backing protest rallies in defence of council housing at this month's TUC and Labour Party conferences. Dave Prentis, leader of UNISON, John Edmonds, head of the GMB, and George Brumwell, general secretary of UCATT, will join tenants' representatives, MPs and campaigners at the rallies.

The news gives a boost to all those building for the 22 September Stand Up For Council Housing Day, also backed by all the major unions and tenants' groups.
