Following on from the J30 public sector strikes over 20 unions are preparing for a day of co-ordinated strike action on November 30th against pension cuts but also against cuts in general.
18th Nov update: Members of 24 unions – AEP, Aspect, AHDS, ATL, CSP, EIS, FDA, GMB, NAHT, Napo, Nipsa, NUT, PCS, Prospect, NASUWT, SCP, Siptu, SoR, TSSA, UCAC, UCATT, UCU and UNISON and Unite – have voted “Yes” to strike action. As many as 3 million workers could go on strike on November 30th in what promises be the biggest trade union mobilisation in a generation.

Often strike action can be ignored by those in power but also the vast majority of workers not in unions or... directly affected by the issues. However this is different! The scale of strike action proposed cannot be ignored, though the government and pro-government media will attempt to divide and undermine the strike, it is vitally important therefore that we, rank & file union members, students, precarious workers & unemployed call for a mass show of solidarity for those taking strike action and to generalise the strike on Nov 30th.
From early morning pickets, direct actions, occupations & demonstrations - whatever you're into - lets all do it on Nov 30th and amplify the resistance to austerity.
