Building the fight against Austerity


July 10th was a massive demonstration of the determination of workers to resist the relentless attacks on their services, their standards of living and their rights. Coordination of action across all fronts is essential if we are to maintain the pressure and make the issue of austerity central to the forthcoming General Election. We all want the Tories out but Labour has already signalled its intention of sticking to the Tories’ spending limits if elected to power. This meeting will address how we can oppose the current attacks and build a growing resistance to the ongoing policies of Austerity. Come and join the discussion – all welcome.

The Great Pay Robbery

To coincide with the publication of a new TUCG booklet, this meeting will look at what the Resolution Foundation has called "an unparalleled collapse in real wages" in the period since the financial crash of 2008. With the epidemic of low pay, and casualised, part-time work, often on zero hours, for the first time a majority of people experiencing poverty are now in work. Real incomes are further squeezed by the cuts to benefits and soaring housing costs, and the benefits system effectively subsidises exploitative bosses and landlords. How can unions and working class communities build an effective fightback to stop this great pay robbery?

TheCostofLivingCrisis-jpeg 1

By MIchael Calderbank

Foreword by Mark Serwotka, PCS General Secretary

Based on research commissioned by the TUCG, the book examines why costs have risen for all items of expenditure, ranging from housing and child care to food and transport. He makes practical proposals on how these costs can be reduced. He also delivers an uncompromising message to the leaders of all mainstream Westminster Parties: it is time to end the politics of austerity, an ideological project to cut the size of the state permanently.
