Next Trades Coucnil Meeting: Wednesday 18th April

The next Trades Council meeting will be held on Wednesday the 18th April, this will be a packed agenda, with the BNP fielding 3 candidates in the Gillingham area, there is lot of work to do in countering their lies and agenda to split the solidarity of working people.

The Love music Hate Racism festival on the 28th will also require a great deal of organising – if we are to stamp the mark of trade unionism on the event, and the need to organise and mobilise against racism.

This event will role straight into the campaign to build for the PCS dispute set for the 1st May, a significant dispute as the PCS union is striking as much against privatisation as it is for the cynical attacks on Collective Bargaining and agreements. The Trades Council in conjuction with the PCS North West Kent branch will be holding a public meeting on the 24th at the Sunlight centre, Gillingham, starting at 7.30pm, this event will primarily discuss solidarity action for the 1st.

All council members and volunteers are required to build for all of these events.
