This is an open format discussion meeting on recent issues around trade unions – all welcome. Some issues and ideas to be discussed are:

A Future that Works – the TUC’s call for an anti-austerity march in London on 20th October 2012. We will be discussing local organisation for the march.

Links with local Unions – how can we improve the local activist network to include trade unions.

Community organising – a look at Unite’s idea for community union membership – see this article in Red Pepper magazine for some background.

An anti-austerity general strike – is there a case?

Please come along with your ideas or to help organise for the 20th October.
