Manchester: Cuts

UNITE continues to play an important part in the campaign against the cuts which threaten jobs and vital services. For more information see www.dontbreakbritain.org.
Locally, UNITE is playing an important part in the Manchester Coalition Against Cuts.
UNITE is organising transport from all over the country to the TUC’s national demonstration on Saturday (26th March). UNITE’s trains from Manchester are full, so if you want to go and don’t yet have a place, please contact Manchester TUC on 07825 158 944 or 07857 610 426.
This week also sees the first national strike action against the cuts, by the University and College Union (UCU), whose members in Higher and Further Education are taking rolling strike action. In England, they will be on strike on Tuesday and Thursday of this week. Please show your support at picket lines or at these local events:

  • Tuesday 22nd March: Lobby of Vice Chancellor, 12:00, University Place, Oxford Road, Manchester (opposite the old Manchester University Building)
  • Thursday 24th March: Rally and March, assemble 12:30, All Saints Park, Oxford Road, Manchester
