Modern Times

Colleagues,

Back from France and straight into the thick of it.

On Tuesday I was with colleagues from UNITE, UCATT, PCS etc. in Birmingham at lunchtime marking our respect for International Workers' Memorial Day.


It is a highly poignant day and reminds us all of one of the primary reasons why we as trade unionists exists.

I was really pleased that most of the UNISON activists I was teaching that day came along to the event next to the Cathedral in Birmingham.

Please let me know what events you attended across the UK.

Many thanks

Ian

Pleased to report (as ever) on a well attended event in Manchester.

Good attendance from UNITE comrades and other unions.

Always good to see/hear from UCATT reps who represent in my view the group of workers worst hit by H&S scandal each year.

Thanks

I didn't know of this event - how do you find it if it is going ahead in your town?
