Preparing for June 30th strike action

 RCT Socialist Update no. 20

As we approach the 30th of June where in all likelihood we will see upto 800,000 public sector workers take co-ordinated strike action against the government's assault of the public sector pensions and in reality the entire cuts agenda. Socialist Party members from RCT will be visiting various pickets lines throughout the day and also attending the rallies being held in both Cardiff and Merthyr, if you are interested in coming along with us to show your support then just get in touch via e-mail at glyn.matthews.rct@gmail.com. Amongst those taking strike action are the Public and Commercial Services Union (PCS - the union for civil servants), The National Union of Teachers (NUT), the Univerisity and College Union (UCU - the union of academic staff in colleges and universities) as well as some other unions.

At the rally many young members of the Socialist Party will also be participating in the activities of Youth Fight for Jobs who will also be in attendance to show their support and build for the planned Youth March for Jobs from Merthyr to Cardiff.


In preperation for this members of RCT Socialist Party will be attending a district Socialist Party meeting on Monday in a change to our usual meeting night. The speaker at the meeting will be Chris Baugh Deputy General Secretary of the PCS and Socialist Party member. Come along to the meeting.
