The next 7 days are vital to stop a sell-out in the public sector pension struggle. Unison and the GMB have signed the government's Heads of Agreement, which will kick the dispute into the long grass and waste the incredible head of steam created by the 2 million strong N30 strike. But if we can build pressure on these unions and the TUC (see lobbies below) we can stop this retreat.
As part of this many union activists are coming to the conference organised by PCS Left Unity this Saturday and which is open to ALL members of ALL unions in the public and private sectors. If you're opposed to a sell-out, please come along and try and bring your fellow union members and workmates. We have to act now! The pressure can work - Unite's health national industrial sector committee has now rejected the deal!
Bring your union & anti cuts banners!!

The PCS Left Unity National Committee invites all activists from all unions to an organising conference on the 7th of January to debate how we can build the campaign to defend our pensions and fight the cuts and prevent any unacceptable “deal” that makes us work longer, pay more and get less.
This will be an organising conference, not just a debating forum. It is intended to arm activists with the issues so they can go back to their workplaces and into their unions in order to build a campaign that will secure justice on pensions.
To cover costs there will be a registration fee of £5 for waged delegates.
