Unison, GMB, Unite, NIPSA, FBU, PCS, Prospect, NUT, ATL, UCU, NASUWT, NAHT, NAPO, UCAC, and EIS are set to take co ordinated strike action on November 30th
On November 30th 2011 many Unions will be striking against their Pension Reforms and government spending cuts.
Many more will be supporting them. Those not in a union, members of the public, students, the unemployed are all encouraged to do what they can to show solidarity and support.
Many people are unable to attend a picket line or a demo for various reasons, therefore a mass email event has been proposed.
Send emails of support and solidarity to all media outlets, including local media in your area. And, should you wish your MP too.
Let's remind them who they work for! Let's show them that we aren't willing to lay down and take this, we are all going to fight their oppressive, unnecessary changes and cuts!
If You want a suggested Letter you could start with something like this:
Regarding The November 30th Strike Actions
I am not able to attend the Strike Actions for (reason)
This does in no way mean I dont fully support the actions being taken.
I and many others hope that this sends the correct and very direct, strong message to this current Government that they are NOT acting in the interests of most of the people in this country, but rather for a "protected middle England".
We cannot accept that excluding swages of citizens from considerations is correct.
Pensions being punitively changed, Public Services cut, jobs lost, libraries closing, people being Hit Hard by cuts that are in no way acceptable to those being hurt by them. The pensions changes will penalise thousands and thousands of hard working public workers.
May this serve to show the Government that people have had enough of the rough handed, ill thought out and damaging actions from the Government.
