DO NOT MISS

Wednesday 13th July, 2011,  8pm at the Beechwood  Hall  Hotel, Wykeham Rd.

A SUMMER OF DISCONTENT?
with special guest speakers.
Following on from the massive 30th June strike action........
The strikes in Southampton over pay cuts and the threats of  losing their jobs if they refuse to sign new contracts has prompted public sector workers to fight back!
This state of affairs is symptomatic of the Coalition Government's intent to embark on a series of ideological policies designed to reflect the austerity measures of the
I.M.F. which have only recently been imposed on the people of Greece. These include :- massive public spending cuts with huge job losses; pay freezes and even pay cuts, as in Southampton; increased pension contributions for public sector workers for less pension receipts on retirement at 68; cuts in benefits, particularly for the most vulnerable in society such as people with disabilities; the wholesale privatisation of public sector assets and services.
             
Just as in Greece and in Spain, however, people here are waking up and beginning to offer resistance, and the unified strike action by the C.P.S., N.U.T., A.T.L. and U.C.U.on 30th.June was the first effective response, after the T.U.C.  Mass Rally in March in London, to the Coalition's austerity programme. The coming months will undoubtedly witness an even stronger response through more co-ordinated Trades Union activity with the support of the general public as more and more of the public begin to suffer from austerity, and in Worthing the W.S.N. will be at the forefront!
So come along to our Meeting on Wednesday and find out how you can make a contribution to oppose these vicious attacks on our Public Services!
