The coordinated action over local government pay on 10 July will bring 1.5 million workers out on strike from across public sector unions More…
 
After all the attacks on our living standards by this vicious ConDem government it’s vitally important that we now use the public sector strike on 10 July to mobilise wider layers of workers by urgently preparing for a sustained campaign of national industrial action”. Jim Reading – Stafford NUT
 
“TUSC is backing this strike 100%.  July 10th must be used as a springboard for the further action that will inevitably be necessary to defeat this government. If the TUC fails to name the date for an escalation of strike action then the unions that are willing to fight should do it instead”. Andy Bentley – TUSC Staffordshire Organiser
 
This day of strike action should be used to put pressure on the TUC to name the date for a 24 hour general strike against austerity”. Chris Parton – NUT rep

Britain needs a pay rise.”
