If thousands of students can force the Tories into a U-turn... think what 6.4 million workers organised in unions can do!
The threat to our jobs and pay means workers must demand a fighting programme from the unions and their umbrella organisation the Trades Union Congress. The National Shop Stewards Network is holding its annual eve-of-TUC Congress rally virtually - and it has never been more important.
Countless struggles by workers to make workplaces safe are being followed by trade unionists fighting attacks on our very livelihoods. Millions support NHS and social care workers demanding a 15% pay rise to start to claw back the pay stolen by a decade of pay freezes and cuts.
The pandemic has lifted the lid on the class inequalities in this profit-driven society. The anger and frustration, particularly of young people, has been shown by the incredible Black Lives Matter movement and victorious A-level protests.
The rally will feature leaders of fighting unions. There will also be an open mic for union members and reps to highlight their own struggles, appeal for solidarity and seek to link up the fightback.
Help put a fighting programme on the unions' agenda to take into workplaces and onto the streets. Join the rally! It's for all workers - it's not restricted to union reps.
The rally will be on Zoom and will go out live on social media. Full access details can be found in the NSSN weekly bulletin at shopstewards.net.
