Campaigning for Public Services Conference

Speakers at the conference organised by Swindon TUC on March 20th: Mick Shaw (hidden) FBU President, Mark Serwotka, PCS General Secretary, Michelle Gordon, GMB Organiser Swindon, John Lister, Health Emergency, and Swindon TUC Chair Andy Parsons.

39 people attended the conference which discussed cuts in funding, leading to attacks on services and jobs across the public sector.

In an afternoon session the discussion centred on the idea of organising a Public Services Alliance which would aim to bring together unions and service users in campaigning to defend public services. The proposal will be discussed by Swindon TUC at its next meeting on April 7th.
