Update: video of the march/rally
On Thursday workers from Unite Health, Univesity and College Union, and the Public & Commercial Services Union will be on strike. Whilst the official reason for the public sector strikes is always ‘pensions’, this is only because the unions are legally bound to strike on matters that directly affect their members employment. If you speak to the rank and file members of these unions it is clear the strikes are against the governments cuts agenda as a whole, not just the cuts to their own pensions. They are are a response to some of the largest attacks on the quality of life of the working classes, poor, elderly and vulnerable that have ever taken place in this country.
Get down to the picket lines (full list below) and lend your support if you can. There is also a march starting at 10.30am from the Bristol Royal Infirmary picket lines.
