PCS will have a stand (number 45) at the conference where each day we will be posing a question about austerity to highlight the figures that back up our argument that the cuts are damaging society. PCS reps from the north west region will be on hand to give firsthand accounts to delegates about how the cuts are impacting on the services our members deliver.
PCS fringe meeting: Tuesday 1 October, 12.30pm - 2pm in Exchange 1, Manchester central
On Tuesday lunchtime we are holding a fringe meeting ‘Austerity isn’t working, there is an alternative’ at which general secretary Mark Serwotka will be joined by economist Anne Pettifor director of Prime (policy research in macroeconomics), and Len McCluskey, general secretary from Unite the union who we have an agreement with to campaign against the cuts.
Our presence at the conference also gives us the chance to lobby Labour activists and politicians about our ’68 is too late’ campaign, which aims to stop the reckless increases to our state pension age.
Deputy general secretary Hugh Lanning will be addressing fringe meetings held by the Palestine Solidarity campaign and Unite Against Fascism.
