You have probably spent the last seventy-two hours in shock and depression at the election result. Now it is time to consider the fight back which needs to start ASAP. The Trades Council or local TUC group is a forum for local unions to meet and organise together. ALL Southwark trade union members are welcome, so if you cannot attend on WEDS 13th, then please send someone else from school in your place.
We will obviously be discussing the election and more importantly how local unions can work together to respond to the upcoming attacks – on the right to strike in particular. We will need union solidarity on this, starting on Weds (if not before). Please ensure that someone from your school attends on Weds night from 7pm at The Southwark Council Offices on Tooley Street.
