Midlands Strike Rally – Victoria Square – 10th July 11:30am

10th july strike rallyThere will be a national strike day on Thursday 10th July with public sector workers protesting against the continued squeeze on their living standards brought about by pay freezes, pension cuts and below the rate of inflation pay rises under the Tory/Lib Dem coalition’s austerity agenda. TUC analysis shows that the average public sector worker is £2,245 worse off in real terms since this government took office. In local government, wherealmost two thirds of the workforce are paid below £21k a year and around half a million workers are paid less than the Living Wage, workers will have experienced a real terms pay cut of 18% by the end of 2014. The strike involves PCS, Unite, Unison, the NUT and the Fire Brigades Union.
