Pensions strike

2,000 people, the biggest rally and demonstration in Wolverhampton in living memory.

A testament to the work of the unions involved in the trades union council. This trades union council has shown once again that the power of a collective is greater that it’s constituent parts.


2012 affiliation forms have been sent to branch secretaries – please return asap.


Leafleting of public took place before in Bilston High St, Wednesfield High St, and twice at railway & bus stations. 10,000 rally leaflets distributed. Theatre production and stall.

Appeal for costs towards the Express & Star adverts placed on behalf of the unions. £4,084 spent; donations received from NUT,UCU (College), UCU(University), UNISON(University), UNISON (General) with  PCS(West Mercia), UCATT & WB&DTUC pending.

See videos of rally on unless you work for council as they blocked access!
