Planning Meeting for ETUC 'Day of Action' on 29th September and Comprehensive Spending Review on 20th October
SATURDAY 4TH SEPTEMBER
10.30am - 13.00pm
BAILEY ROOMS, SHIRE HALL, CAMBRIDGE
On September 29, to coincide with a meeting of European finance ministers, the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) will organise a European Day of Action.
As European Governments move collectively to slash public expenditure, including jobs, pay and pensions, while the European economy is fragile and vulnerable to renewed recession, the ETUC is to mobilise a collective trade union response. This will be centred on a big demonstration in Brussels but the ETUC is calling on affiliates to take the maximum possible degree of action in all the countries of the European Union. This can include protest stoppages, demonstrations, lobbying MPs etc.
Cambridgeshire Against the Cuts are holding a meeting on Saturday September 4th to plan local action and activities on this date and also action on October 20th, the day the Government Comprehensive Spending Review reports back which will outline devastating cuts to public services and attacks on jobs, pensions and our terms and conditions.
