Manchester: Branch meeting tonight

With almost every news bulletin bringing fresh news of job losses across the economy, the recession is the central issue affecting working people.
UNITE members at Waterford Crystal have been occupying their plant in protest at plans to close it. One of the strikers is in Manchester this week and has agreed to come and speak at our branch meeting tonight. Why not come along, hear about their campaign and show your support?
UNITE’s Greater Manchester IT branch meets:
5:30-7pm, Thursday 5th March
MAN34, conference room 34GCR2

All branch members are welcome to attend. As well as our guest speaker, there will be time to discuss workplace issues and other union matters.
