Support TUC March 20 October 2012 for a Future that Works

 This motion below was passed unanimously last night by West Ham Ward Labour Party branch. 

Support TUC March 20 October 2012 for a Future that Works

"West Ham Ward Labour Party branch welcome the call from the TUC to help organise a National March for A Future That Works on Saturday 20th October 2012.

We agree to work together to maximise the participation of Newham Residents, employees, Labour Party members and affiliates to this event as we did for the 26th March 2011 TUC march for the alternative.

We welcome the TUC publication “Austerity is Failing. We Need A Future That Works” and recognise the need to ensure that in the next General Election a government is elected that will implement an alternative economic policy, to deliver that Future that Works".

It is to be submitted to the CLP, Newham Labour Group, Mayor Robin Wales, Lyn Brown MP, John Biggs AM and Claude Moraes EMP.
Similar motions will be sent in by UNISON affiliates to the CLP.
I hope that all trade union branches will pass such motions and the Labour Movement family will not only come out in force on 20 October as they did in March last year but also that we make the political argument that Austerity is not working and we desperately need an alternative economic policy.
