UNISON council strike tomorrow

UNISON workers strike on 30th June

Unison workers at Birmingham City Council will be on strike tomorrow, over pay cuts and changes to conditions. The strike has been timed to coincide with the final day of the Liberal Democrat conference, as we have a ConDem coalition locally that is forcing this contract onto the council workers.

Picket lines will run at workplaces from 7am-10am, followed by a static demonstration outside the ICC from 10:30am-11:30am, and a mass members meeting at 12noon.

If you can go to a council workplace and show your solidarity with striking workers it is sure to be appreciated.

Also happening tomorrow is a march about the potential closure of the Bull Ring Markets, assembling at the markets at 12:30 and marching to the ICC – more information on the meeting and the threat to this business and jobs is available on the Save Our Markets website.

These events will round off a week of protest at the Lib Dem conference, which began on Friday with a banner drop by NCAFC activists – for which one has been held in remand, and will be imprisoned for at least 10 days – and a demonstration with thousands of people on Sunday.
