pensions logoBranch offers support and solidarity to the unions taking action 30th June 2011

The branch has offered its support and solidarity to unions in the 'first wave' of industrial action in defence of our pensions.

The PCS, the Association of Teachers and Lecturers (ATL), the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the University and College Union (UCU) have all balloted their members and had a resounding YES vote for a day of action. All four unions, consisting of 750,000 workers are now set to take co-ordinated strike action on 30 June.

The Branch will be sending a message of solidarity and support to these unions on the day.

He added that there was unanimity among all public service unions on the need to fight the threat.

UNISON nationally has urged branches and members to show that solidarity through a UNISON presence on demonstrations and rallies on the day.
