Job losses

Issue No. 1896

TRADE UNIONS organised a march and rally against job losses in Newcastle last weekend. Some 500 protesters marched through the city to oppose job cuts in manufacturing industry. TGWU union leader Tony Woodley spoke at the rally, telling protesters that his union would fight to save manufacturing jobs.

He told protesters, 'I make this pledge-if members at any workplace want to take action to defend their jobs, be it strikes or sit-ins, or campaigns in the community and in parliament, the TGWU will offer its full support, not just in words, but in deeds, backed by resources.'
