Oppose the Cuts

The pensions issue highlighted in this news letter is just one example of the massive cuts planned by the government in everything from child benefit to incapacity benefit, health and education.

Alongside the cuts are further moves to privatisation, from Royal Mail to the NHS. The attempts to push the cost of the recession onto working people will affect us all. Both your Fujitsu Combine Committee and the UNITE IT & Communications National Sector Committee have decided to back a demonstration against the cuts called by the Right To Work Campaign. It will take place outside the Tory party conference in Birmingham on Sunday 3rd October. For more information see www.righttowork.org.uk. Transport is being organised from all over the country. If you are interested in attending, please contact us
