There are many ways in which you can help!

Help to set up starts from 10am in the Annexe. You can also help give out flyers to local folks on the streets - there plenty of bargains to be enjoyed as well as an opportunity for people to find out about the only daily paper which sticks up for them! Assistance is always needed in looking after stalls and being on hand to assist with tea and coffee. Perhaps you'll even get to try your hand at spinning the "Wheel of Fortune"!

The underlying purpose of the Tory anti trade union legislation is to is too crush the remaining power of the unions to protect the interests of working class people. This is in order to facilitate yet further transfers of wealth and income from the working class to the rich and big business.

ACTION and SOLIDARITY can defeat this attack on trade union freedom. Join us in the fightback at our joint trade union meeting. http://clydebanktuc.org/29-meetings/59-west-dunbartonshire-against-the-anti-trade-union-bill

Sunday 4th October 11am

2015 autumn conference Class Politics

The Tory government has launched a frontal attack on the welfare state and the labour movement. A million more public sector jobs are to be eliminated, the right to strike further restricted and benefits again cut.

The Tory justification is free market economics – the neoliberal smokescreen behind which the super-rich are creating a new political order that seeks the permanent subordination of labour.

The conference will focus on how the politics of working class unity can be re-developed – drawing on the lessons of the past but within the horizons of the present.

The Tories seek to use fear and division. The class they represent is strengthening its own international alliances through TTIP and an increasingly predatory EU.
Our class has to re-establish its unity in the broadest sense of all working people and their communities.
The conference will assess the potential of the People’s Assembly in building this new unity and the role of the trade union movement in providing the power of collective organisation.

Venue: STUC, 333 Woodlands Road, Glasgow G3

£4/ 2 (concession) includes tea, coffee & lunch.
