Dear Colleagues,

TUC HeartUnions week of action – protect the right to strike

The TUC has agreed to co-ordinate a week of action against the Trade Union Bill 8-14 February 2016. This week will focus on the value of trade unions in a modern economy, and why the trade union bill is counterproductive. It will be branded heartunions.

The week will centre on three setpiece activities:

•    The ‘big workplace meeting’ on Tuesday 9 February 2016
•    A high-visibility day of action on Thursday 11 February 2016
•    A push to strengthen the movement by asking members to recruit friends, family and work colleagues

Please put these dates in your diary and more information will follow soon. We need to maximise our participation in this week of action in order to ensure that, along with the rest of the trade union movement, our opposition to the Bill is made loud and clear.

Yours sincerely,

 

Mick Cash
General Secretary
