Budget day protest

On June 22nd around 30 people attended through the course of our Budget Day protest at Worthing town hall, part of nationwide "Right To Work" protests at the Con-Dem austerity budget which as expected hits workers and the poor hardest for the reckless behaviour of the financial services rich. Members of UNISON, CWU postal workers, and PCS and GMB members were present. We got good support from passing motorists. In building for the protest we have made new links with many more trade unionists in the town and with workers who would like to join unions and organise their workplaces. We will be organising a public meeting to follow up and building for a
trip to the Tory conference in October. Thanks to everyone who turned out!

Welcome to the Worthing Solidarity Network blog!


Worthing Solidarity Network is an informal network of organisations and individuals supporting action to defend jobs and public services.

It exists to support all workers taking action to defend and improve their living standards.

We will hold regular meetings to discuss and share information on trade union and local workplace issues, community campaigns and so on. We are following the successful example of similar groups set up in Brighton and elsewhere and we aim to create a forum for local workers and trade unionists to seek support and help.
