A great opportunity for those of us who can’t attend the trade union protest in Manchester to still rally together against Tory Party conference. The meeting will start at 19.30 but you will be welcome to arrive from 19.10.

Speakers:

Janine Booth, RMT Executive – who will discuss the role of trade unions in fighting government cuts and the historical example of Poplar Council

Maria Exall, CWU Executive & TUC Council – another leading trade unionist who’s been busy fighting plans to privatise our postal services. Maria will discuss tactics for fighting privatisations and saving our services.

We should also be joined by Jon Rogers, UNISON Executive – currently campaigning against the spread of school academies and confident that the recent campaign has succeeded in preventing Brighton’s Varndean comprehensive from being turned into an academy, but continuing to stress the need for vigilence to protect our schools everywhere.

We will receive short updates from the local area LRC sub-groups in Hastings, Worthing/West Sussex and Brighton & Hove, with a special report on the re-founding of Worthing & District Trades Council and information about the Lewes Festival of Socialism (running during October).

19.30, Tuesday 4 October 2011
