Support the Unions on the 30th June - Support Salford Against the Cuts

Most of you will already be aware that teaching unions ATL and NUT, as well as Civil Service Union PCS and University and College Union UCU will be taking strike action on Thursday 30th June. Those unions will be striking not only against attacks on public sector pensions, but attacks on all public services. Salford Against the Cuts supports their action and is encouraging everybody to do the same.
There are two key ways you can do this:
1. Picket Lines
Visit your local school, college, university, court, tax office or job centre in the morning and say hello to those on the picket lines. Trade Unions are an important part of the anti-cuts movement and they have the strength to make the Government listen. The action they take on 30th June is for all of us fighting against cuts, whether they be to jobs or services. If you're not sure where to go maybe come down to Salford Magistrates Court where we know the Salford City UNISON banner will be between 8 and 9am.
2. Strike Rally
The main strike rally for Greater Manchester will begin at 11:30am at All Saints Park, Oxford Road, Manchester. There will be a march of the workers on strike and many supporters. After the march there will be a rally with various speakers. The bigger the march and rally the bigger the coverage in the papers and on the news. If you can make it along please do so.
