We are pleased to announce that we are organising an additional commission at our upcoming conference (details below). Martin Powell-Davies, NUT NEC member, and Steve Hedley, RMT Assistant General Secretary, have recently returned from Istanbul, Turkey as part of a trade union delegation organised by Daymer, a Turkish and Kurdish community organisation. There is a report of their visit on Martin Powell-Davies’ blog, available here. To hear more and discuss solidarity, come along to the session at the NSSN conference
Solidarity with Turkey – eyewitness report
With Martin Powell-Davies, Steve Hedley and Oktay Sahbaz, Daymer centre
(speakers in a personal capacity)
NSSN 7th annual conference
11am-5pm, Saturday June 29th, Camden Centre, Judd Street, London, WC1H 9JE
Speakers include Mark Serwotka, PCS general secretary, Billy Hayes, CWU general secretary and Steve Gillan, POA general secretary
The NSSN was initiated by the RMT transport union in 2006. Seven national unions – RMT, PCS, CWU, NUM, POA, NUJ, and BFAWU – are either affiliated to the NSSN or officially support it as well as countless union branches, shop stewards committees and trades councils.
We support workers in struggle as well as those facing victimisation for the crime of defending their members from the employer’s attacks.
The conference will include main sessions on resisting the cuts but also workshops on defending the NHS, organising in the workplace, housing, organising the unorganised, fighting blacklisting etc. It’s open to everyone in the unions and all those fighting these brutal cuts.
