Barnet Alliance supports the public sector unions’ strike to defend their pensions on 30 November. We also want good occupational pensions in the private sector. And how about a decent state pension! Everyone deserves a decent old age, and the country CAN afford it!

Here is a list of picket lines tomorrow that we know about: there will be more. Please go and support the strikers. If their pensions are attacked we will all suffer; workers will work longer and services will decline. The Government’s attack on pensions is also a part of making the public sector more attractive to private sector companies bidding to run services. It is part of the outsourcing agenda!

If you are striking, have a successful day!

The picket lines start in the morning; some last all day. Many strikers and supporters will head to central London around midday for a march organised by the South East Region of the TUC. Barnet folk are meeting at the Cochrane Theatre, Southampton Row, WC1 at noon. The march assembles in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, from 12 and sets off at 1pm. It goes to Victoria Embankment for a rally at 2pm.
