Exeter Trades Council backs NHS protests

Exeter Trades Council has agreed to support the demonstration in Exeter on 3 July. The time for clapping our NHS staff is over. Clapping does not put food on the table or pay the rent! The miserable proposed offer of 1% is an insult to staff. With inflation already running at over 2% - this would mean a pay cut. During more than ten years of austerity, many NHS workers have lost over 20% of pay in real terms. There are reports of staff leaving the NHS in droves due to exhaustion and feeling under-valued. Waiting lists stand at a record five million. The Tories and their cronies have made millions. It is time to stand up and defend our NHS!

Exeter Trades Union Council will join with Keep Our Health Public, Health Campaigns Together and NHS Workers Say No, to support the 15% pay demand for NHS staff, fight privatisation and demand safe conditions for everyone in the NHS.

Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.

We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to click here to donate to our Fighting Fund.
