London against Austerity Conference - 4 July 2015 Islington Town Hall

No acceptance of austerity | March with Labour members

Dear <<First Name>>,
Councillors, communities and trade unionists together

GLATUC - the Greater London Association of Trade Union Councils - have called a conference to bring together trade unionists, councillors and community activists to discuss developing joint campaigning against austerity and its impact on local services.

Councillors from across London are encouraged to attend to widen discussion about how we collectively respond.

Supported by Islington Labour Group, sessions on the day will include:

  • strategies to oppose cuts to grants to the council or organisations 
  • supporting campaigns for staff pay and conditions and maintaining services 
  • maintaining and returning council services in-house 

Speakers on the day will include:
  • Islington Council leader Richard Watts
  • Islington Housing Executive Member James Murray 
  • Barnet UNISON Secretary John Burgess
  • Labour NEC local government rep Alice Perry

  • Time: 10am
  • Date: Saturday 4th July
  • Venue: Islington Town Hall
  • Tube: Highbury & Islington (Victoria/Overground) and Angel (Northern)
  • Registration page

I will be at UNISON National Labour Link Forum in Manchester on the 4th so unfortunately will miss this event. My West Ham Labour colleague, John Whitworth, is going and will be encouraging Newham Councillors and Party members to attend. Click on Link here
