NSSN and left union activists calls lobby of TUC Public Services Liaison Group: Demands further action on pensions 16 December A recall conference of the Public Sector Liaison Group (PSLG), the body that brings together TUC affiliated public sector unions, will be convened on Monday 19th December at 3PM. At this meeting TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber will attempt to sell Francis Maude’s latest pensions offer as the basis for a settlement of the dispute to trade union leaders. In a bid to head off this damaging out come the NSSN and other left trade union activists are calling for a lobby of the PSLG before it meets. Trade unionists will have the opportunity to voice their opposition to Maude’s proposals and demand further action in the New Year. The NSSN will be demanding:

  • Reject Maude’s latest pensions proposals which will mean all public sector workers having to work longer, pay more, and get less.
  • No to secret deals by union leaders over the heads of the membership. We demand democratic control of the negotiations.
  • We demand that the date is set for the next co-ordinated public sector strike early in the New Year. UNISON Scotland has already proposed 25 January as the date of the next strike.

The lobby will begin at 2:00 PM at Congress House, 23-28 Great Russell Street. WC1B 3LS The NSSN urges all of it’s supporters and readers to come down to the lobby and build the pressure for further action in defence of pensions.shopstewards.net: NSSN and left activists call lobby of TUC Public Services Liason Group: Demands further action on pensions
