June 30th - Worthing solidarity with the strikes UPDATED

On Thursday June 30th it looks highly likely that members of the PCS, NUT, UCU, and ATL unions among others, will be out on strike against government attacks on workers' pensions, pay and conditions. This is the next big crucial battle in upping the fightback against austerity, and one which everyone opposed to the cuts must support.

Worthing Solidarity Network is calling on everyone possible to support the workers taking strike action and make sure the community is connected to the strikes taking place:

- If you work, take the day off and go to a picket line to show support, and/or join union- and WSN-organised activities through the day.

- If you don't work, if you're at school or college, just come and join in with the Day of Action

Details have still to be finalised, and your ideas are *very* welcome, but local PCS, NUT and WSN have agreed to stage:

** A march through Worthing for striking teachers and civil servants and their supporters.

** A rally with speakers, info stalls etc.

Book the day off/stick it in your diary!

The strikes if they go ahead will be big national news, and - taking the lead of Spanish workers and young people at present - we want to make sure that everyone in Worthing hears about the alternative to cuts, and sees for themselves the unity being created between workers under attack and everyone else facing cuts to their benefits, EMA and services.
